Stop the New United Nations Power Grab!

Stop the New United Nations Power Grab!

Call your Senators NOW and tell them to vote NO on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD)!

July 11, 2012

The United Nations is at it again, exploiting the most vulnerable members of our society to increase its power.  The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), another American sovereignty-threatening treaty, was sent to President Obama and he signed it on July 30, 2009. 

The Treaty has been sent to the U.S. Senate for ratification, and liberal Senate leadership is moving quickly.  This Thursday, there will be a hearing on the Treaty before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.

We need you to tell your friends and neighbors about this new UN attempted power grab, and we need everyone to call and email your Senators, and urge them to vote AGAINST the CRPD treaty. 

The American public cannot afford for this treaty to pass and allow the United Nations to implement more regulation that will have devastating effects on every American “person, organization, or private enterprise.”  Worse yet, people with disabilities deserve better!  Addressing disabilities issues through an international bureaucracy undermines our ability to empower families and communities to serve disabled people’s needs.

The CRPD Treaty would expand the already growing powers of the UN in the United States, undermining our national sovereignty.  These new regulations are so complex that every American citizen will be impacted by the far-reaching consequences. 

The CRPD Treaty will:

  • Exceed the bounds of the Americans with Disabilities Act and eliminate any remaining state sovereignty on the issue of disability law.
  • Demand that all American law on this subject conform to UN standards. 
  • Force “every person, organization, or private enterprise” to eliminate discrimination on the basis of disability. This imposes impossible burdens and expenses onto private citizens, as they can be held in violation of the treaty if their private property is not fully accessible to persons with disabilities, even if they do not know any persons with disabilities. 
  • Give the UN the power to determine the legitimacy and lawfulness of the United States’ budgets to assess compliance with such treaties.

Take Action!

The time is NOW to stand up for states’ rights and our national sovereignty!  I urge you to call your Senators and tell them to vote NO on the CRPD Treaty!

Please Vote NO on the CRPD Treaty!

The CRPD Treaty will harm people with disabilities who need a government that empowers families and communities to serve their needs. Delegating that authority to a corrupt international body will undermine our efforts to meet their vital needs.

The CRPD Treaty will exceed the bounds of the Americans with Disabilities Act and eliminate any remaining state sovereignty on the issue of disability law.

The CRPD Treaty will require that all American law on this subject conform to UN standards.

The CRPD Treaty will force “every person, organization, or private enterprise” to eliminate discrimination on the basis of disability. This imposes impossible burdens and expenses onto private citizens, who can be held in violation of the treaty if their private property is not fully accessible to persons with disabilities.
