Ratify United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in December 2006 is a landmark treaty by the United Nations and the global communities to include the disabled as an integral part of societies. Many nations have joined the treaty, the US participation is necessary. According to the latest statistics, including the world Bank, there are approximately 1 in 7 or 1 billion people with disabilities in the world. Ratification of the treaty is critical and urgent for continuing progress on civil rights, human rights, dignity, and well being in this nation and for bolstering efforts to support and advance democracy, liberty, civil rights, universal human rights, dignity, and well being worldwide.
