Adoptee Rights Demonstrators: Please Keep in MindThe forecast for Monday is for Sunny Skies and 75 degrees.
You will want to take the heat into effect and we recommend wearing comfortable shoes for walking. Make sure you were your Adoptee Rights T-shirts or green. Between carrying signs, etc. you will also want to be as hands free as possible.
We have VERY specific rules & regulations given to us by McCormick Place, and we will go over those rules at the sign making party, and give another quick run-down of those rules before we leave for the demonstration.
Demonstration posters will be rendered the evening prior to the protest. However, if you choose to bring your own it must be met with ARC board member approval prior to the demonstration.
The Adoptee Rights Coalition also maintains the right to refuse any props, costuming, or gimmicks not in receipt of our approval prior to the protest. The “Code of Conduct” standards contained within the ARC creed will be strictly enforced.
