Bastard Nation is happy to announce that it has entered into a partnership with Equal Access Oklahoma, dedicated to adoptee equality in the State of Oklahoma. It joins BN partners CalOpen, Indiana Open Access, Missouri Open, Michigan Open Access, and Open Adoption Records Quebec BN will continue to work with and support Oklahoma Open, a non-Bastard Nation partner with a long record of non-compromise campaigns.
Equal Access Oklahoma advocates for the restoration of human and civil rights of Oklahoma adult citizens denied by law from having access to personal records pertaining to their historical, genetic and legal identities, because they were adopted as children. It seeks to restore the dignity of adult adoptees by eliminating the government’s imposed management of adult adoptees relationships resulting from sealed records.
We asked Staci to tell us, in her own words, a little bit about herself and the goals of Equal Access Oklahoma.
I was born 1969 in Oklahoma City, OK, and placed for adoption at birth. I spent three months in foster care and then I was adopted at age 3 months.
I had amazing adoptive parents who I call Mom and Dad. I had a wonderful childhood, with very supportive parents that raised me! I was the 3rd generation of adopted children. I broke the cycle !
