Have You Called Your Senator and Representatives? Support Vietnam Adoptions

Now is the time to call your state representatives and senators to alert them of and share your views on the JCSIS "Child’s Right Campaign". You can look up your state officials' contact information by using the links below. Please call their offices and follow up with an email.


1) Today and tomorrow, June 3 and 4, call your US senators and state representatives.
Senate contact information: www.senate.gov
Representative contact information: www.house.gov
Please call your state officials first and then follow up with an email to each individual you have spoken with.

2) To aid you in your calls, you may begin with this talking point:
“I/we urge the Senator/Congressperson to join the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Co-Chairs and sign their letter to Secretary Condoleezza Rice in support of the recommendations found in Joint Council’s "A Child’s Right Campaign for Vietnam”.
3) If they have not heard about the Campaign, ask them to contact the Congressional Coalition for Adoption Institute at 202-544-8500 or Joint Council on International Children’s Services at 703-535-8045.

4) Urge them to sign onto this campaign, because without it either you or one of over a thousand prospective adoptive parents and children will be in limbo as we await the outcome of Vietnam and US negotiations regarding international adoptions.
