The CRPD(Convention on Rights with Persons with Disabilities) is modeled on the extensive disability rights laws that exist in the United States today, and embodies the underlying rationales incorporated in those laws. Since their passage, U.S. disability rights laws have succeeded in opening doors and eliminating barriers for people with disabilities in the United States in all aspects of life. Ratifying the CRPD would allow the U.S. to continue this proud tradition of leadership and progress around the world.
