Have you ever wanted to help out with the Open Records movement, but weren’t sure how to get involved? Maybe you’re not able to make it to the protest, or better yet, maybe you’re joining us and still want to help out?
This is your opportunity to get involved!
Every Friday(7 in total) from now until the protest (July 22, 2008) protesters, and supporters of adoptees and our civil rights, will be sending letters to their state representatives. Our mission is to inform the legislators about the issues surrounding Adoptee Rights and unconditional access to our records as well as informing them of our appearance in New Orleans this July. Join us!
This July 23-25th 2008 the Adoptee Rights Committee will be in Exhibitors booth #246 at the Annual State Legislatures Convention where thousands of your State Representatives are expected. By participating in this campaign you are helping “our cause” reach the legislators before we meet during the convention. When we approach them for their positions and possible support for unconditional open records, they will have a better understanding of what we’re talking about.
This is your opportunity to help the movement educate the people who have the power to unseal our records. We may have 5 minutes with someone, who if given the correct material through our writing campaign, would support a clean open records bill in your state.
If you’ve never written a letter to your state legislator, now is the perfect opportunity to get started! A draft letter as well as other important information has been put together here: “WRITING CAMPAIGN,” for all participants.
We’re asking volunteers to come together and participate in this letter-writing campaign over the next 6 weeks leading up to the protest.
5 minutes a day, one day a week and the cost of a stamp is all it takes.
Joining in on our mailing list is a fabulous way to ask questions, get tips and assistance during the campaign as well as meet the other protesters and writing campaign participants.
We hope to see you there!
