Senator Risch is back in Idaho—Time to Lobby on the CRPD
Dear Idaho 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.
Senator Risch needs to hear from you: he is a member of the Foreign Relations Committee and voted against the treaty last time it was presented to the Senate. We ask that you contact him to thank him for voting against it and encourage him to stand strong against it when it comes up again. The United States doesn’t need the CRPD, 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 write Senator Risch and urge him to oppose the UN CRPD. See the senator’s contact information below.
2. Senator Risch will be back in Idaho till June 3. While he is in the state we urge you to meet with the senator at one of the following addresses to talk about the treaty:

3. Email Senator Risch. Use our new emailing tool to personalize and send a prewritten letter to your senator by filling out your information here.
Your message to your senator 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 with 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.
Michael P. Farris, JD, LLM,
