A message from the Deafhood Foundation urgently encouraging people to write or call the U.S. Senators to support ratification of the UN CRPD (United Nations’ Convention on Rights for Persons with Disabilities) before the hearing this coming Thursday, July 26, 2012. It also exposes the untruths by Theresa Bulger who recently issued an alert to OptionSchools, AGBell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, and those practicing the Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) to oppose the CRPD. For the complete alert from Bulger, go to this link: http://deafhoodfoundation.org/2012/07/bulgers-letter-opposing-un-crpd/
To see a great sample letter and more information on examples of the CRPD that mentions Deaf people, signed languages, their cultures, go to www.audismfreeamerica.blogspot.com.
For another sample letter plus a list of the senators to write and/or call IMMEDIATELY on Wednesday, July 25, and that’s TOMORROW/TODAY, go to this NAD link: http://www.nad.org/news/2012/7/urgent-support-ratification-convention-rights-persons-disabilities-today
