Join the Thunder for the “Disability Treaty” (CRPD)!
[This was first posted two days ago at my other blog, Rambling Justice.]
Help bring attention to the “Disability Treaty” (Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, CRPD)! We need the U.S. to ratify this important international human rights treaty protecting the civil rights of 1 billion people with disabilities worldwide. Sign up your Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr account NOW to join the next “Thunder Clap It” for the CRPD at http://thndr.it/1ky8p97 !
What’s A “Thunder Clap It”?
A “Thunder Clap It” is when 100 or more people sign on their Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr account to all send out the same message at the same time to all their followers. To participate, you need to sign up in advance. The next CRPD “Thunder Clap It” will be at 2pm EST on June 10, 2014 (1pm Central Time, 11am Pacific Time). Sign up BEFORE this time or you will miss the Thunder Clap.
