CRPD — Rejected!
It doesn’t happen often, but there was some good news out of Washington last week. Despite the support of New York’s Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, The United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Treaty (CRPD) was rejected.

Hope to see you on the 20th!
