TASH, in conjunction with the United States International Council on Disabilities, presents “An Update on the Status of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD)”, exclusively to TASH members. The CRPD seeks to ensure that countries across the globe provide people with disabilities the same rights as everyone else in order to live full, satisfying and productive lives.
Listeners will get the latest update on the treaty’s status in the United States Senate and will be equipped with talking points and materials to contact their own Senators in the upcoming months as the treaty moves along to a final vote in the Senate. They will also get the tools they need to combat any opposition to the treaty, as well as, encourage others to join them in advocating for the treaty.
The pre-recorded session is presented by (top-bottom) USICD Executive Director David Morrissey, USICD Disability Rights Program Manager Esmé Grant, and former chief of the Disability Rights Section of the Department of Justice and a disability rights attorney John L. Wodatch.
