You did it.
You made it happen.
If it weren't for you, the U.S. Senate wouldn't have defeated the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
Your petition signatures (over 20,000!), phone calls, emails and tweets about CRPD's flaws made the difference.
Now, that CRPD is defeated, we know that United Nations won't have oversight of how we care for our special needs kids. This treaty would have given the U.N. oversight of the healthcare and education choices parents with special needs kids make. Had it passed, CRPD would have become the law of the land under the U.S. Constitution's Supremacy Clause, and would have trumped state laws, and could have been used as precedent by state and federal judges.
But now it won't.
And that's because of you and many other grassroots efforts - including the tremendous work of the Home School Legal Defense Association and Utah Senator Mike Lee.
As parents of a special needs little girl, Karen and I are grateful for all you did to stop this treaty from becoming law. You are helping to protect our Bella and special needs kids across this country, and we thank you.
Thanks for standing with us,
