RatifyNow CRPD Blog Swarm 2008!

There is an international movement to gain ratification of the International disability rights convention. Through medium of the Internet and world opinion, called the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

This effort has not met with much success, particularly in the US. The hope is that an international response would increase awareness and develop sensitivity to full inclusion of people with disabilities in society. There is a link for data and statistics on people with disability.
