President Obama Signs UN Rights Treaty

On July 24, 2009, President Obama invited disability advocates to the White House to celebrate the 19th anniversary of the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). Chester Finn was there representing SABE, Self-Advocates Becoming Empowered.

During the celebration President Obama announced that the United States was signing the United Nations Treaty on Rights for People with Disabilities.

“Disability rights aren't just civil rights to be enforced here at home; they're universal rights to be recognized and promoted around the world,” President Obama said. “And that's why I'm proud to announce that next week, the United States of America will join 140 other nations in signing the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities -- the
first new human rights convention of the 21st century.”
