Urgent: Hold the Line against CRPD

Former Republican Senator Bob Dole has been pushing his former colleagues in the Senate to support the U.N.’s Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). He knows the treaty is about 2 votes short, and he is applying all the pressure he can to get those 2 votes.

It is imperative now more than ever that we continue to hold the line so that those last 2 votes do not cave. Your calls, emails, and visits may be the only thing giving them the backbone to stand up to the pressure and vote “No” to this treaty that would move domestic law to an international context and put your parental rights at risk.

Please take a moment today to call or email your Senators and urge them to oppose this treaty. If you already called, call them again. Or even better – there may still be time to schedule a visit while they are in your state until the end of the month.

Your message can be as simple as the following:

I am calling to urge my senator to vote “No” on ratification of the CRPD. We do not need to ratify any treaty that purports to direct our domestic policy. Only Americans should make law for Americans. Even if the content of this treaty were perfect – and I have concerns that it is deeply flawed – an international treaty is no way to pass American domestic law. Treaties should deal with how nations treat other nations, not how my government governs me or my family. Thank you.
You can find your senators’ contact information by clicking on their website links on your state page. You can get there by clicking on your state at

Thank you for taking time out of your day to take a vital stand for parental rights and American freedom.
