Senate to Approve Ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

The U.S. International Council on Disabilities has been leading the effort to get the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities ratified in America.

The Obama Administration has submitted the CRPD to the Senate for advice and consent for ratification. With immense pleasure, many Disability Organizations and millions of People with Disabilities in this nation now find support for ratification of the CRPD being issued by seven senators.

The seven senators involved represent a bipartisan effort, something that is certainly a pleasure to witness these days out of Washington, D.C. The senators are:

  • Udall (D-NM)
  • Durbin (D-IL)
  • Moran (R-KS)
  • Harkin (D-IA)
  • Coons (D-DE)
  • McCain (R-AZ)
  • Barrasso (R-WY)
