The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is an international commitment of the United Nations to protect the rights of persons with disabilities.  Countries signed on will work to protect and provide equality, inclusion and dignity for people with disabilities on a global basis. It was an honor for me to be at The White House when President Obama signed this treaty on July 24, 2009.  Who knew it would be 2013 and it is still not ratified?
