The sovereignty-killing, anti-parent, so-called UN Disabilities Treaty is BACK!  And I know it is probably a waste of time but Senator Kaine is on this committee that will recommend (or not) if the treaty goes to the Senate floor.

Here’s the press release from  I know I am cheating but here is great info to help you get in touch

Dear Champion of Parental Rights,

The U.S. Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee will vote on the dangerous UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) on Tuesday, July 22.

Now is the time to let the Senate hear loud and clear that Americans are firmly opposed to surrendering our sovereignty, parental rights, and the rights of people with disabilities to unelected, unaccountable UN bureaucrats. Please call and email your two U.S. senators right now and urge them to reject the CRPD. We need every single parent and concerned citizen to make their voice heard. Bad bills can be repealed, but once a treaty is ratified there is no going back.

You can reach your senators by calling the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121, or find their direct office line by clicking on your state at (You can also use the shortcut followed by the 2-letter postal abbreviation for your state. Live in Florida? That’s

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.”We do not have the votes to stop the CRPD in the Foreign Relations Committee. That is why we urge you to call not only the senators on the Committee, but also your own two senators. Please call even if your senator supports the treaty, or even if he or she opposes it. Every senator needs to hear from us. The following senators are on the Foreign Relations Committee:



Robert Menendez (NJ): (202) 224-4744

Bob Corker (TN) (202) 224-3344

Barbara Boxer (CA): (202) 224-3553

Ron Johnson (WI) (202) 224-5323

Benjamin L. Cardin (MD): (202) 224-4524

James E. Risch (ID) (202) 224-2752

Tom Udall (NM): (202) 224-6621

Jeff Flake (AZ) (202) 224-4521

Edward Markey (MA): (202) 224-2742

John McCain (AZ) (202) 224-2235

Chris Murphy (CT): (202) 224-4041

John Barrasso (WY) (202) 224-6441

Tim Kaine (VA): (202) 224-4024

Rand Paul (KY) (202) 224-4343

Jeanne Shaheen (NH): (202) 224-2841

Marco Rubio (FL) (202) 224-3041

Christopher Coons (DE): (202) 224-5042

Richard J. Durbin (IL): (202) 224-2152

And here are the reasons for not enacting this treaty.   I would like to hear that thousands contacted Kaine in the next few days leading up to the Tuesday vote.  Don’t believe any thing from the Obama Administration (like Senator Coons did) that this treaty will not affect homeschooling – it absolutely will.

And while you are at it:  Contact Senator Warner, too.
