On January 15, 2020, at 12:01am I will update the adoptee rights map to show the unrestricted status of New York. Feel free to join me and others online, both to watch the countdown and to field the many questions people typically have about the new law.
When I wrote about the enactment of S3419 a bit ago, I ended my FAQ post with the following:
If you are a nerd and want to watch the state of New York change from red to green on the map on 12:01am, January 15, 2020, I totally get that. I’m nerding out already thinking about that. Maybe we’ll have a collective toast live, right then and there. I’m seriously looking into making that happen.
Well, I’m going to do that. Interested in joining me? Here are details:
When: 11:30pm, January 14, to 12:30am January 15
Where: Online Here, starting at 11:30pm (link will work at 11:30pm )
How: Call in to (646) 307-1990 and use conference code 251-560-096 # to join the conversation.
Remember: This is 11:30pm Eastern Time.
That’s it. We’ll watch the countdown to equality together, talk about adoptee rights, and field questions if you have them. If we’re lucky, we’ll have Annette O’Connell available from the New York Adoptee Rights Coalition as well as others involved in getting this law enacted.
