2014 NSCL Update on the Adoptee Rights Lobby Effort

We met with many legislators while at the National Convention of State Legislators Summit last week.
2014 booth volunteers: Jackie FallonGaye Tannenbaum, Karen Fetrow, Lynn Grubb, and Jeff Hancock.

Each year more and more state reps favorably approach us. This year a few even stepped up to the plate seeking more information so that they may sponsor in their states. Further information will be posted through here as well as the Adoptee Rights Coalitions page on who to contact and which states they are from.

Gaye Tannenbaum, Jackie Fallon, Cheerio Firstmom, Lynn Grubb, and the fine people of MnAdoptReform volunteers including Mary Mason and Penelope Needham are to be commended for their excellence presence at the ARC booth.

Washington State Senator Tina Orwell, successful sponsor of WA SB 5118, Penny Needham; president of Minnesota Coalition for Adoption Reform, Jeff Hancock ARC President, Jackie Fallon ARC Board member and 2014 NCSL Hostess.

It was an absolute honor to work alongside each of you this year!
