July 22nd is fast approaching! Here is the update for the Adoptee Rights Day demonstration in New Orleans. We will be posting frequent updates so folks will be in the loop with schedules and what the plan of action is for the next two months, and while in New Orleans attending the demonstration and Exhibitors Booth.
New Orleans demonstration updates:
The permit for Lafayette Square has been paid for and is in our possession.
The demonstration and march will be held Tuesday July 22nd beginning at 9:00 am (more details soon).
The Exhibitors Booth has been paid for and the Adoptee Rights Committee will be in booth #246 on the Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday following the demonstration.
We have received over $3000 in donations! Thanks to everyone for supporting ARD. Our goal for a full page ad in the print version of the New Orleans Times-Picayune listing adult adoptees and their friends and family who support adoptee rights is still in progress, if you haven't done so already add your name to the list!

A writing campaign to Legislators starts on Friday June 6th (information and instructions will be available on the evening of the 5th).
We are asking for volunteers to assist the organizers while at the event, if you can help us out in New Orleans please let us know.
If you haven't done so already hop on over to our mailing list where you can get immediate updates about our Writing Campaign starting tomrrow Friday June 6th, as well as interaction with all of the other protesters and supporters of Open Records and the Demonstration.
