***ROOM CHANGE***
The hearing has been moved to Senate Dirksen Office Building, Room G-50.  It is no longer in Hart 216, it will be in Dirksen G-50.  Hope you can make it!

Beloved Colleagues in the Struggle for Justice:

I love you!  Justin loved you and continues to love you!

Today I have an urgent message to share with you and solicit your support/actions.

Back in 1994 in Sydney, Australia, Justin had an honor of sharing the podium with Most Reverend Desmond Tutu on the subject of Human Rights and Disability.  Justin appealed to the global leaders, “…In most nations people with disabilities are segregated from the mainstream of culture.  The hard truth is that individuals with disabilities will never be able to fulfill their magnificent potential until their rights are mandated and enforced by law, and implemented in real life by a society that empowers…  We must convince every nation to enact and implement laws and policies that protect the rights of the new humans, and empower them to fulfill their potential…”

On Thursday, July 12, at 9 am, the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee will hold a hearing in the Senate Hart Office Building 216 Senate Dirksen Office Building G-50 on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.  I urge you, your colleagues and friends to attend this vital hearing.  Arrive early!  For further details from USICD and DREDF, please scroll down below my message.

Colleagues, now is the time.  The US has a chance to join once again the ranks of world leadership in the area of disability and human rights.  Let us show our Senators how much we care about and support ADA and CRPD.  Let us wake them up on July 12th!  “CRPD, Yes!”

ADA POWER!  CRPD POWER!  POWER OF GLOBAL SOLIDARITY FOR DISABILITY PRIDE, JUSTICE AND EMPOWERMENT!

Together, but only together united in love and truth, we shall overcome!

Leading On Together No Matter What!

I love you!

Yoshiko
