Today we are proud to launch a new petition giving a voice to our veterans to oppose the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). This treaty would subject American domestic policy to the standards and scrutiny of the United Nations and grant the federal government authority over American families of children with disabilities.
Already many veterans organizations have spoken up in favor of U.S. ratification of this dangerous treaty. This petition will allow our soldiers to communicate to the Senate that in this instance these organizations do not speak for them.
“A vote to accede to the CRPD would constitute an insult to the men and women who have suffered permanent injury and disability in the struggle to preserve personal liberty and American self-government,” the petition asserts. “We have shed our blood to preserve these vital principles of freedom; this treaty poses a serious threat to both.”
You can read the entire petition here, and if you are a veteran we invite you to sign it.
If you are not a veteran, please pass this along to every freedom-loving, family-supporting veteran you know. (In my experience, that’s pretty much all of them.)
General Petition Also AvailableIf you or a family member lives with a disability, hopefully you have already signed the petition to oppose CRPD ratification here. If you are a veteran, we urge you to sign the petition above.
But many of you who are neither still want to go on record opposing this dangerous treaty. By popular demand, we have set up a petition for you here. And if you have signed the other petition(s), you can sign this one as well; it is for every American concerned for our sovereignty and parental rights.
Our friends at Patriot Voices have a similar petition here. We encourage you to sign theirs, as well.
