Over the course of the first two weeks of November, the Senate will have an important decision to make regarding an international treaty that could have ramifications for the community of people living with disabilities worldwide.
First, on November 5, the Disability Treaty, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) will go before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. A second round of hearings will occur later in November. Pending the committee’s review, it could go to the Senate for ratification the following month.
