Deaf Vloggers and Bloggers, Please Vlog/Blog on the International Disability Rights Treaty!

Posted on 25 March 2008. Filed under: Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities ( | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

You may recall from earlier publicity that RatifyNow.org is organizing a “blog swarm” in which bloggers/vloggers and writers agree to write or vlog about the same topic at about the same time. In this case, the purpose is to celebrate, promote, and educate people about the international disability rights treaty, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). I am posting this announcement here because I hope to entice more DEAF people to participate in the blog swarm!

For those of you who are thinking about writing a contribution for the RatifyNow CRPD Blog Swarm 2008, RatifyNow posted a small “taste” of what a few of the early contributers have submitted already at:

http://ratifynow.org/2008/03/25/sneak-preview-for-the-upcoming-ratifynow-crpd-blog-swarm-2008/

This is not the real thing. The actual blog swarm is still scheduled to go live on March 30 in New Zealand time. (In the rest of the world, it will still be the 29th.) RatifyNow is sharing this small sampling from among the early submissions in the hope that they will help inspire others to write more blog posts to supplement them.

Contributions can be submitted to RatifyNow@gmail.com. Please use the phrase “BLOG SWARM” somewhere in your subject line. If you have a blog, send us the exact URL for your vlog or blog post, your name (or screen name), and the name of your blog. If you don’t have a blog then send the full text of your blog post, your name (or desired screen name), and a SHORT suggested title for your blog post. RatifyNow will try to find a home for it.

I had not heard about this. I will have to check it out.

The 2008 RatifyNow blog swarm is now over. But you can keep an eye out for future blog swarms like it. And, blog swarm or no blog swarm, it is good for all of us to be aware of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (more info at RatifyNow.org/ratifynow-faq and at un.org/disabilities.
