Urgent calls needed to Senator Dick Durbin about UN Disabilities Treaty
Dear Illinois HSLDA Members and Friends,
Your U.S. Senator, Dick Durbin, is a member of the U.S. Senate's Foreign Relations Committee. The Committee will hold a hearing on whether the United States Senate should ratify the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) on Tuesday, November 5, at 2:30 PM.
It is critical that Senator Durbin hears loud and clear from his constituents about this dangerous United Nations treaty. Senator Durbin is a strong supporter of the treaty.
Please call Senator Durbin right now at his DC office, as well as his district offices and urge him to oppose the UN CRPD. His D.C. office number is 202-224-2152, and you can also call any of his district offices at the following numbers:
You can also email Senator Durbin by using HSLDA's emailing tool to send him a prewritten letter by filling out your information here.
Your message to Senator Durbin 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.
