Walmart Latest Supporter of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

In late December, Walmart added its voice to supporters of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.  In a letter to U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Menendez, Walmart wrote “Ratification of this treaty would underscore the role of the United States as a leader for the roughly one billion people in the world with disabilities – including approximately 58 million Americans.”

Walmart’s letter expanded on its commitment to a diverse and multicultural workforce, including people with disabilities.  The company urged the Senate to ratify the treaty.
