Join Advocates Across the Country: Ask your Congressman to Sign on to the Disabilities Rights Treaty!

The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) is an international disability treaty which provides a vital framework for creating legislation and policies around the world that embrace the rights and dignity of all people with disabilities, including autism spectrum disorder. The Americans with Disabilities Act was the foundation for the treaty. Stand strong with us and many other disability organizations; we need your support to help us ratify the treaty so please join us for a national call-in week.

We need your help! If your Senators and Representative are not co-sponsors, please contact him or her and ask that they do so. To find out the name and contact information for your Congressional Representatives, go to: http://www.contactingthecongress.org or call Senator Bob Corker, (202-222-3344) ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today, and voice your support for CRPD.

The lives of 1 billion people with disabilities across the globe are depending on you—call today!
