Take a Stand Against CRPD

21,075 signatures

 ***UPDATE***

CRPD is back.  On December 4, 2012, the U.S. Senate voted against CRPD, but we’ve learned that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is expected to reconsider this dangerous treaty sometime this fall.


The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) threatens U.S. sovereignty and parental rights.  This treaty, if ratified, would effectively put us under international law when it comes to parenting our special needs children. While CRPD may, on the surface, appear to protect those with disabilities, it actually gives the government the power, with direction from the U.N., to decide what is best for our children.

That is wrong and not something we should see in the United States of America.   

There are two provisions in this treaty that are most concerning:

  1. One treaty provision would give the government, acting under U.N. instructions, the ability to determine for all children with disabilities what is best for them. 
  2. If CRPD were ratified, it would give the U.N. discretion over decisions about how we educate our special needs kids and could potentially eliminate parental rights for the education of children with disabilities.

Patriot Voices is putting the pressure on now to ensure the U.S. Senate does not pass this dangerous treaty.
