500 Postcards to the Governor

A5036B, the “bad” adoptee rights bill, was passed by the state Assembly and Senate in June, but has still not been sent to Governor Cuomo for his signature. The Coalition, along with many local and national adoptee rights advocates, has signed on another letter asking Governor to veto the bill.  It appears that our opposition has garnished some attention from the Governor’s office and the concerted efforts of all involved is making a difference. Would you like to help? 

In partnership with New York Adoption Equality and Adoptee Rights Law, the Coalition has created pre-addressed postcards to be sent to the Governor. We would be thrilled to send out packages to individuals, parent groups or organization. All they need is your return address, a personal message should you choose, a stamp and to be dropped in the mail.
