Mike Farris Testifies against UN Disabilities Treaty: Please Call Your Senators by William A. Estrada, Esq. Director of Federal Relations
Today HSLDA Chairman Mike Farris testified before the U.S. Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee against the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
HSLDA strongly opposes this dangerous United Nations treaty. We encourage you to read Mike Farris’ testimony online.
HSLDA strongly supports laws like the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and other laws which have made the United States the world leader for ensuring the freedom and dignity of people with disabilities. But we reject any attempt to ratify a United Nations treaty which would threaten our nation’s sovereignty and threaten the ability of parents, not government bureaucrats, to care for their children with disabilities.
