A California-focused virtual town hall on March 10 for anyone born, adopted, living in, or connected to California through adoption in any way.
Can the restrictive vital records law in California be changed to secure the right of adult adoptees to get their own original birth records? What are the impediments? When, other than now, is the best time to advocate for change? What can we all do as adoptees or allies to address this issue and other adoptee rights issues in California?
Date: March 10
Time: 4pm PST
In one of a series of adoptee rights town halls focused specifically on California, we’ll discuss adoptee experiences within the country’s most populous state, including an overview of current law and what may be needed to change that law. We will also talk about what California residents and adoptees can do today as allies with intercountry adoptees who do not currently have U.S. citizenship, despite being adopted by U.S citizen parents.
This promises to be a free-wheeling informal kick-off session where information, brainstorming, and constructive ideas are welcome. Register today to be part of this Zoom-powered virtual AU event.
