Bastard Nation Action Alert
Support Hawaii SB 2153
Hawaii adoptees need your help NOW!
On 3/3/16, HB 2082, an adoptee equality bill which would give adult adoptees unconditional access to the court file pertaining to their adoption, passed unanimously out of the Hawaii House of Representatives (three votes were ‘yes with reservations’).
The companion bill, SB 2153, passed out of the Senate Judiciary and Labor committee unanimously on 3/2/16.
That bill, SB2153, will now very soon be going to the full Senate for a floor vote.
Go here to read SB 2153. There will be some minor, technical amendments to this bill that have not been released, but they will not be substantive.
Please email and tweet (where applicable) all of our Hawaii Senators and ask them for their YES vote when SB2153 comes up for a floor vote. Hawaii is on the verge of unrestricted adoptee access. You can help make history!
A sample email to the Senators for your personalization:
“Dear Sen. _______________,
As an adoptee, I would like to ask for your support of adoptee equality by voting YES to SB 2153, which gives adult adoptees unrestricted access to the records of their birth and adoption.”
