Arizona Senators back for Recess—Time to Lobby on the CRPD
Dear Arizona Members and Friends,
The U.S. Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee will hold hearings on the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) when they return to Washington, D.C. after the Memorial Day recess. Their first day back is June 3.
Both Arizona senators Jeff Flake and John McCain need to hear from you! Both senators are on the Foreign Relations Committee; Senator McCain voted in favor of the treaty last time it was presented to the Senate and Senator Flake is new to the Senate this term. We ask that you voice your opposition and contact them to ask them to vote against the treaty when it comes up again. The United States doesn’t need the UN treaty, and it must not be allowed to be ratified by the U.S. Senate. Here are three ways that you can help!
1. Call and email your senators and urge them to oppose the UN CRPD. See both senators’ contact information below.
2. Both Senator McCain and Senator Flake will be back in Arizona till June 3. While they are in the state we urge you to meet with them at one of the following addresses, to talk about the treaty:
Senator Flake may be reached at any of the following offices:
Likewise, Senator McCain is reachable at the following offices:
3. Email your senators, using our new emailing tool to personalize and send a prewritten letter to your congressmen 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.”
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.
P.S. We greatly value you and your support—it is a privilege to serve you. Thank you for all you do for freedom! If you or someone you know is not a member of HSLDA, will you consider taking a moment today to join or recommend us? Your support enables us to defend individual families threatened by government officials and protect homeschooling freedom for all. Join now >>
