We track and monitor adoptee rights legislation in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and US Congress. If a pending or recently enacted bill relates to the rights of adult adopted people in the United States, we will list it.
We sponsor and organize events and projects that work to change the narrative of adoption while centering adoptee lives and experiences.
