Why Chicago? Why the NCSL?
The Exhibitors Booth in the NCSL convention center allows us to talk about adoption laws to legislators from every state. The NCSL Legislative Summit is the largest and most important meeting of the year for legislators and legislative staff and is highly attended. It is here where we enlighten lawmakers about achieving equal rights for adoptees. After the Demonstration, The ARC spends the following three days, August 7th, 8th and 9th, in the Exhibition Hall at McCormick Place in Chicago working directly with legislators and staff so they may become aware and educated about the need for Adoptee Rights legislation in their home states.
