Contact Governor Cuomo to request that Senator Tony Avella be added to the Department of Health work group that is making recommendations on adoptee rights in New York.
Our work continues, and it continues not through one single member but through a coalition of organizations that have committed collectively to a single goal: equality for all adoptees.
Reclaim the Records has joined the New York Adoptee Rights Coalition in the fight for the right of adopted persons to request and obtain their original birth certificates, without restrictions or conditions.
The Avella Bill provides the best and most strategic path forward, and NYARC will work to ensure that S5169A receives full consideration in the New York legislature and is enacted without the addition of any discriminatory provisions.
Adoptive and Foster Family Coalition of New York has joined NYARC as a coalition partner, bringing to the coalition its advocacy work and long commitment to serving New York foster, kinship, and adoptive families.
