Join the Thunder for the “Disability Treaty” (CRPD)! June 10 - 2pm EST 1 pm CST

Help bring attention to the “Disability Treaty” (Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, CRPD)!  We need the U.S. to ratify this important international human rights treaty protecting the civil rights of 1 billion people with disabilities worldwide. 

 Sign up your Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr account to join the next “Thunder Clap It” for the CRPD!

What’s A “Thunder Clap”?
A “Thunder Clap” is when 100 or more people sign on their Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr account to all send out the same message at the same time to all their followers.  The next CRPD “Thunder Clap” will be at 2pm EST on June 10, 2014 [This is 1 pm Illinois time].  To participate, you need to sign up in advance.

How Do I Sign Up?
Go to this link: http://thndr.it/1ky8p97

A message will ask you to share a message to support the #CRPD.
You will find three buttons—one each for Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr.  You need to have an account in at least one of these three in order to participate.

Click on whichever button is appropriate.  You will have an opportunity to personalize your message to your followers.
Hit the “Add My Support” button.

If you have successfully signed up, then you should appear at the top of the list of “Recent Supporters” in the right hand side bar.  Refresh the page if needed.
