      Dear List Members,

      We are at United Nations and, after intensive negotiations we are
      about to get the International Treaty to protect people with
      disabilities worldwide. It is possible that the US will force a vote
      and the Convention is in danger. We would like to URGE all disability
      groups, especially those in the US to email these emails in order to
      urge them NOT to force a vote on any provision in the
      draft convention. Here are email addresses below.
      -------------------------------------------


      Dear US Delegation,

      The disability community around the world is calling on you to adopt
      this
      convention without forcing a vote - we need this convention adopted
      by consensus
      - please do not let us down!!!!

        Done!  But I've had quite a few undeliverables.  Please re-check your contact information.  Also, it's helpful with this type of campaign to list the email addresses altogether for one easy Control + C click.  Otherwise best of luck and thanks for sending this along.  Happy to participate.  All links to the Treaty gratefully received, too.  Has anyone else been following this?
