Thank you for defending parental rights.
The U.S. Senate will hold hearings on the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) after the end of the congressional recess on June 3. Your senators, Richard Burr and Kay Hagan, are key senators in keeping this treaty from passing and need to hear from you.
Senator Burr voted against the treaty when it came before the Senate last December. Please contact him to thank him for his vote and encourage him to stand firm in his opposition of the CRPD.
Senator Hagan voted in favor of the treaty last year, but we believe she could be persuaded to change her mind if enough constituents contact her. We ask that you contact your senators and ask them to vote against the treaty when it comes up again.
Here are three ways that you can help:
1. Please call your senators at all of their offices and urge them to oppose the UN CRPD. Phone numbers are below.
2. Both Senator Burr and Senator Hagan will be in North Carolina for the congressional recess until June 3. We urge you to meet with your senators at one of the following addresses to talk about the treaty.

3. Email your senators. You can use HSLDA’s new emailing tool to personalize and send a prewritten letter to your senators by filling out your information here.
Your message to your senators can be as simple as the following:
“I urge you to oppose the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
This treaty surrenders U.S. sovereignty to unelected UN bureaucrats and will threaten parental care of children with disabilities. Our nation already has laws to protect Americans with disabilities. This treaty is unnecessary and will hurt families by giving bureaucrats the power to decide what is in the best interests of a child with disabilities, not the child’s parents.”To find out more about the CRPD or print out material for your visit with your senators, please click here.

Thank you for joining us in this battle to protect our children and our children’s future. You defeated this treaty last year. Standing together, we can defeat this treaty once again.
