This event is sponsored by the US International Council on Disabilities (USICD) and the Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF). They would love for as many of you as possible to show up at this even to honor the long time support of Senator Dole.
The vote on CRPD is also expected on Tuesday. The CRPD calls on the world community to recognize sign languages as equal to spoken languages and recognizes Deaf culture. http://www.nad.org/issues/international-advocacy/crpd If you have not yet contacted your senators, now it the time to do it!
