une 20th Update for the Adoptee Rights Demonstration!

The protest is fast approaching and we have some new updates for the protesters that will be joining us in New Orleans this July 22, 2008.
We need 2-3 monitors at the protest to help keep marchers on the sidewalk and off the street and to keep protesters moving around while outside the convention centre.

We need about 10 volunteers to help make posters/signs on Monday July 21, 2008 at the St. Christopher Best Western (protest’s main hotel) from 6-8 pm. If you can join us with these positions, please contact Kali

Monday July 21, 2008 all protesters are invited to meet in the bar/lounge of the St. Christopher Best Western at 8:30 pm for a protest orientation and to gain a sense of unity going into the following day.

If you are joining us in New Orleans, we still have rooms to fill for our block of 40 at the St. Christopher Best Western and our block due date is June 22, 2008. So please book your hotel reservations ASAP by calling calling 1-800 645-9312 and requesting the group Adoptee-Rights Demonstration.

If anyone has any media contacts please let us know as we will be sending out a press release and public announcement at the beginning of July as well as launching a blogger blitz.

Also, we’re still calling out for confirmation of people attending the protest, so if you haven’t confirmed your attendance with anyone yet, please do so at
Since it is getting close to the protest (one month and 4 days to go!)

I thought it would be cool to provide everyone with a visual on our lodging, protest start location (La Fayette Square) and route to our destination (State Legislators Conference at the Ernest Morial Convention Centre!) Unfortunately the mailling list doesn't support images or graphics so I put an image of our route from google maps onto our home base ( ) and you can see it in the same announcement there if you're interested.

We hope to see everyone in the Big Easy and if you have any questions please shout them out to the NOLA list or to Kali at

In Solidarity

The Adoptee Rights Committee
