On July 24, President Obama marked the 19th anniversary of the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act, which barred discrimination against people with disabilities, by announcing the intent of the United States to sign the International Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). The purpose of the CRPD is to promote, protect and ensure the full and equal enjoyment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms by all persons with disabilities, and to promote respect for their inherent dignity.
