Please Call Senator Hatch and Urge
Him to Oppose UN Disabilities Treaty

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

As you know, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has said that the
Senate will take up the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with
Disabilities (CRPD), possibly as early as tomorrow or Thursday.
Unfortunately, we have been unable to confirm that one of your
senators, Senator Orrin Hatch, will oppose this treaty.

Senator Hatch's silence on the CRPD is baffling and concerning. He is
a respected conservative and his lack of action in protecting parents
and special needs children is disappointing. We need urgent calls to
his office (even if you have already called) urging him to stand
against the CRPD and protect U.S. sovereignty and parental rights. You
can call his Washington, D.C. office as well as one or more of his
district offices, and email him at . If you are able to visit a
district office, that would also be wonderful.

Washington, D.C. Office

Salt Lake City Office

Provo Office

St. George Office

Ogden Office

Cedar City Office

Please give his staff some or all of this message:

"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 disabled
Americans. This treaty is unnecessary and will hurt families. If the
Senate ratifies this treaty, it would be the first time ever that the
U.S. has ratified a treaty that obligates us to recognize economic,
social, and cultural entitlements as rights under domestic law."

Then, please forward this email to your friends and family in Utah and
urge them to call as well. Please also post this information on social
media to help get the word out to parents and freedom-loving people in

For more information on the dangers of this treaty please visit our
CRPD page.

Your contacts will make a difference. In the past few hours, we have
seen several other conservative senators who had been waffling on the
CRPD come out and strongly oppose it--all because of the calls and
emails they received from parents like you.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom.


Mike Smith
President, HSLDA
