Urgent Calls Needed to U.S. Senate: Defeat UN Disabilities Treaty!

Help safeguard U.S. sovereignty!



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

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Please call your two U.S. senators right now, and urge them to reject the dangerous UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).

The entire Senate is returning from six weeks of vacation. Tuesday will be their first full day back. It is crucial that they hear loud and clear today and tomorrow that Americans are firmly opposed to surrendering our sovereignty, parental rights, and the rights of people with disabilities to unelected, unaccountable UN bureaucrats.

You can reach your senators by calling the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121, by using our legislative toolbox to type your address and find their contact info, or by using HSLDA’s emailing tool to send a prewritten letter to your senators by filling out your information here and then clicking the red “Take Action” button.

Your message 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.”

The Senate has a packed schedule before senators leave on September 23. At this point, we do not yet know if the UNCRPD will come up for a vote. But we cannot wait until it is too late. We must make our voices heard for parental rights and U.S. sovereignty.

Even as you call today and tomorrow, our staff and local homeschool families are visiting Senate offices and meeting with senators and their staff with one message: please defeat the UNCRPD.

Please visit HSLDA’s action page here to learn more about the CRPD, and you can read the text of the CRPD here. We thank you for standing together with us in defense of our freedom.

For Liberty,

Mike Smith

President, HSLDA
