The Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s vote on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) was cancelled and tentatively rescheduled for July 26th. A group that supports home schooling has been successful in raising concerns about the CRPD. However, their concerns appear to be based on a misreading of the treaty. During the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on July 12, Senators were assured that the treaty would not impact parental rights. The Arc continues to work with numerous other disability advocacy groups to garner support for ratifying the treaty.
