Adoptee Rights Protest

Cross-posted from Over A Candle:

You probably have noticed the new badge off to the right. In less than four months, adoptees (and their supporters) from around the country (and a few from other countries) will be gathering in New Orleans to protest on behalf of equal rights for adoptees. The protest coincides with the National Conference of State Legislatures.

I don't know how many of you can go. I don't know how many of you are even interested in this. But if you are, click on the badge to go to the official website of the protest, learn more about it, and learn how you can help out, even if you can't go.

Records are still sealed in 44 states. Several states are, as I write, considering legislation to shrink this number. Some of these bills are "clean" bills. Some of them, on the other hand, restore only some rights to some adoptees. But there is movement out there. This protest is a chance to have our voices heard.
