CRPD script.pdf



 Check out this sample script for some pointers as you contact your Senator about the Disability Treaty for 2014. “Hello my name _____. I live in ____, South Carolina. I know that the Senator is very busy but I am calling to ask the Senators support for the Disability treaty known as the CRPD2014. The recent additions to the Disability treaty make it something we can all believe in. With all the trouble in the world we need to have our country support a positive action like the CRPD2014 and we all need his help”

Add your own points or any of the following:

  • Ratification is critical to maintaining our leadership role and to eliminating disability discrimination throughout the world.  More than 850 disability, veteran and faith based organizations support the CRPD!
  • Major veteran and military family organizations, representing every generation, support ratification of the CRPD. These groups recognize that our 5.5 million American veterans with disabilities, and the families of those currently serving, will have greater opportunities to work, study, and travel abroad as countries implement the CRPD with leadership from the U.S.
  • U.S. Business Supports Ratification of the CRPD to Benefit South Carolina Business. Many accessible products are engineered, manufactured, or sold by U.S. corporations that can meet the new demands for the world’s population of 1 billion people with disabilities.
  • CRPD Ratification Ensures Humane and Moral Treatment. Without laws like the ADA abroad, millions of children and adults are housed in institutions without enrichment of a family life, community resources, or access to the most basic civil rights like a birth certificate or even a name. Until it ratifies the CRPD, the U.S. is a bystander on these critical matters.


Thank you so much for taking time to talk to me and we are all counting on the Senators support as he can count on mine and all my family and friends in November.
