Senator Hatch’s Powerful
Speech against UN Treaty

Homeschooling in Utah.

Help protect parental rights and U.S. sovereignty.



HSLDA President Mike Smith has been an advocate for homeschooling for more than 30 years.

Dear HSLDA Members,

Last week, your senior senator, Orrin Hatch, gave a strong speech on the Senate floor against the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD). In his speech, Senator Hatch explained how this treaty will not help Americans overseas as it is a treaty between the U.S. and the UN, not the U.S. and another foreign nation. He highlighted the fact that the authority to determine whether our country is in compliance with the treaty is not left to states, or to the U.S. itself. This authority is surrendered to the UN.

In addition, Senator Hatch discussed how the CRPD sees the term “disability” as an evolving concept. He explained that if the U.S. Senate ratifies the UNCRPD, this could impact U.S. law and harm U.S. citizens with disabilities.

We ask that you call Senator Hatch’s office at 202-224-5251 and thank him in your own words for his speech on July 23 on the Senate floor against the UN disabilities treaty, and thank him for his leadership against this dangerous UN treaty. You can also email Senator Hatch to thank him for standing strong against the UN.

Senator Hatch is a key senator against the CRPD because of his three decades of leading the fight to advance the rights of people with disabilities. His leadership against the treaty is encouraging other senators to oppose the CRPD.

For more information on why the UNCRPD must be rejected, please visit our website.

For liberty,

Mike Smith
President, HSLDA
