Do you support open records for adult adoptees? Are you willing to help Michigan achieve equality for Michigan Adopted Adults?
They are putting a call out for anyone that can help with the following:
Media Committee: deals with press releases, interviews, general "getting the word out"
Legislative Committee: deals with day-to-day contact with Congressmen and women (i.e. sending out weekly mailers - statistics and support letters, phone campaigns, etc.)
LegDay (pronounced "Ledge-Day") Committee: organizing local informational booths, designed to educate the public (and, in doing so, educating members of the adoption triad) about the shortcomings of present law and the benefits of the proposed legislation. This committee would also promote the ISRR database, the Central Adoption Registry, and any online, free databases and support groups.
Lobby Committee: deals with garnering and coveting support from powerful politically-active agencies like NOW, the AAC, etc.
"Everyman" Committee: deals with the promotion of letter-writing campaigns, aimed at getting as many support letters sent to our decision-makers as possible.
Each committee will have volunteers assigned, based on their individual strengths and interests. If you would like to volunteer for a specific committee, please let us know. We need to get these committees going as soon as possible, so please let us know your interests as soon as you can. Thank you in advance for your help...together, we can get this job done!
So if you can get involved with them and help in any way they request you join a new group that has just been formed MIOBC found at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MiOBC/
And if you don't want to join, but are a great writer, spend an hour writing to all of these Senators and make a statement that you support the Adoptee Rights Identity movement.
