It brought attention to the fact that, both at home and abroad, youths with disabilities are denied liberties, bullied and too often abused, said Victor Pineda, PhD, a Senior Research Fellow at the World Institute on Disability.
He noted that he himself was one of those treated as an outsider after muscle loss caused him to begin using a wheelchair and relying on a breathing apparatus around 5 years old.
"Throughout my childhood, I had to change people's ideas of what I could do and how I could do it. Eventually, I found out that there are laws that protect me," he said, and then added: "I grew up wondering what my life would have been like had I lived in some place that did not protect the rights of children like me. I discovered that people like me from all over the world were meeting at the United Nations to work on these issues, and I worked hard to join them."
Recently, as the vote to ratify the treaty approached, he invited everyone to contact key Republican senators via twitter and phone to get the votes still needed to help "America, the strongest country in the world, do more to eliminate unnecessary barriers to individual freedoms," he said.
