Yes, everyone should please call your Senators! The http://disabilitytreaty.org website can help you with phone numbers and a suggested script for what to say on the phone to Senators’ staff. Yes, you can call over the weekend–voice mail messages are counted, too! Yes, you can call the same Senators with the same messages multiple times: each call is still counted. Tired of calling your own Senators? Consider calling the Senators listed at http://www.handicap-international.us/breaking_crpd
If you’re in DC, please come to the Disability Treaty / CRPD Rally on July 29th! Learn the details at https://www.facebook.com/events/675884719173229/.
