WE NEED YOUR HELP!   The Marathon is almost over: the end is in sight!  Now is the time for our voices be heard!

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Menendez has scheduled the first of two hearings on the CRPD on Nov 5th!

Today, we have launched a new citizen action center to make it easier than ever for you to reach your Senator with the calls, letters, e-mails, petitions and social media we need:

You can also click the “We Support CRPD” icon above! We urge you to copy the icon and share it everywhere! Post it on your website, Facebook, and Twitter, with its link to the treaty website, so that others can take action! We must build our movement now or we will not succeed.

Senator Menendez and the Committee’s Ranking Republican Senator Bob Corker need to hear from everyone; they are logging all call and contacts made state by state. Your help spreading the word will determine if and when we get floor time for passage of this treaty! It is time for action NOW!

Let them hear you now so that when Medicaid, Education and other issues come to the Hill, they will once again know the power of the disability movement!
