Tell the Senate the Time for Excuses is Over!
PLEASE Call your Senators! And join us at a Rally for the CRPD to let the Senate know we want this brought up for a floor vote NOW!
July 29th, 2014 at Noon
(We will gather at the NCIL rally and move to a location TBD so please join us on time!)
3rd Street NW between Pennsylvania Ave NW and Maryland Ave SW
We will be gathering at the NCIL rally, which will be in area 15 on this map: http://www.uscapitolpolice.gov/special_events/map.pdf
The nearest three Metro Stations are Judiciary Square (red line), Federal Center (blue and orange lines), and Archives (yellow and green lines)
If you’re not located in DC, you can take part by visiting your Senators’ in-state offices and expressing your support for the CRPD!
Encourage your DC-area contacts to attend the Rally! If you’re in Facebook, use the “Invite Friends” feature at https://www.facebook.com/events/675884719173229/
New to the Disability Treaty? Quick overview at http://disabilitytreaty.org/faq
Your Senators need to hear from you again that you support the CRPD! Show that the community is behind this treaty and that we want the process to KEEP MOVING FORWARD to a Floor vote!
Additionally, Senator Reid also needs to hear from us, and that we want a floor vote NOW!
Every call counts–even if you’ve already called a hundred times before. Don’t let people opposed to international cooperation outnumber us in phone calls like they did in December 2012. We need to be louder than they are. Tired of calling your own Senators? Consider calling some Senators who really need to hear from CRPD advocates: www.handicap-international.us/breaking_crpd
If you can come to the rally in person tomorrow–great! I’ll see you there! We need a large crowd to make a good impression on Senators. If you simply cannot come in person, you can still watch it via live video streaming on the web at https://bambuser.com/channel/USCD!
