On April 23, 2014, the Adoption ALARM Network begins its federal thrust to reach every Federal Senator in our country with our message which is contained in our Adoptees Restoration Act. We will be scheduling appointments, writing and calling them to request their cooperation in asking President Obama to enact an Executive Order on behalf of all adult adoptees in our Country!
We have 13 state leaders ready to go in the following States – and we’re inviting anyone who is committed to a national effort to join us. So if you were born or adopted in one of these 13 States, contact the State Representative listed below and express your willingness to become a team member:
AZ – Judy Bassett; CA – Theresa Lujan; FL – Leigh Tyler; ID – Lori Leary; IN – Marcie Keithley; LA – Cryptic Omega; MD – Tara Elwood; MI – Ruth Almen; NJ – Liz Steen; NY – Yvonne Curri; OH – Susan Meek; PA – Joanne Currao; VT – Tim Howard. Debbie Ismail is the Coordinator of the Team Program and is the “go to” person for any questions you may have.
If you are busy and unable to give time, maybe you can help out with financial support. Support us via Paypal link, (Adoptees Restoration Act) has been set up for each of the 13 state teams. The money donated to that particular state will be used to help those team members reach their Senators and House Representatives one-on-one and put a face to our important issue. It will also help us with the ongoing cost of printing and laminating the 12 x 18 Adoptees Restoration Act posters as well as shipping costs when a one-on-one appointment is not possible. Our goal is to meet with as many of our Federal legislators in person at one of their local offices.
TOGETHER WE CAN GET THIS JOB DONE. BUT YOUR HELP IS NEEDED, EITHER AS A TEAM PLAYER OR A CONTRIBUTOR. ALARM’s National effort is running concurrent with the other work being done around the country. We support all pending legislation already in progress. We all want the same end and need to work together to accomplish it.
Please consider donating any amount you can. When you contribute at least $10 to ALARM, you will receive a copy of our 12×18 laminated Adoptees Restoration Act poster which is perfect for displaying on an easel to share with community, civic and church groups, and more importantly with your state legislators. It is also suitable for framing (for posterity – for the time when records are finally open and we can look back and show our descendants what had been denied to adult adoptees for an entire century!) The general public is shocked when they realize that adult adoptees have been stripped of their entire history and lineage after seeing this explicit document. It has been termed by many as “The one document that says it all!”
We understand that not everyone likes to make payments online. In that case, you may mail a check made out to Adoption ALARM and send to ALARM Office, 117 SE 44th Street, Cape Coral, FL 33904.
ALARM IS THE ONLY NATIONAL ORGANIZATION IN THE COUNTRY THAT IS CAMPAIGNING FOR AN EXECUTIVE ORDER TO FREE ALL ADULT ADOPTEES IN ONE FELL SWOOP! IN 2014, OUR FEDERAL THRUST IS ABOUT GETTING OUR FEDERAL LEGISLATORS TO GIVE OBAMA THEIR BLESSING TO GO-AHEAD AND ENDORSE AN EXECUTIVE ORDER, SO THEY DON’T HAVE TO HAGGLE OVER IT. TIME IS ALWAYS OF THE ESSENCE AND WE HAVE NO MORE TIME TO WASTE. PLEASE JOIN US!
