Step Forward For Orphans March 2013




On May 17th, LeftRightForward is having a Step Forward for Orphans March in Washington, DC.

An effort to restore civil discourse between politically diverse Americans
... by supporting organizations like Both Ends Burning (https://bothendsburning.org/)

Below are a few ways you can help:

· Reach out to your local representatives to promote more awareness for the cause and expose the flaws in the current international adoption system by sharing the link to the trailer. http://stuckdocumentary.com/ We encourage you to set an appointment NOW to meet with them on May 16th.

· Gain their support for the cause and get them to understand the need for change and why we are marching. Get a local official in your region to join us in D.C. and commit to helping us find a solution.

· Encourage them to sign the petition. (We will be drafting a form letter you may want to use when contacting your local government officials.) Here is the link: http://www.change.org/petitions/make-a-child-s-right-to-a-family-our-priority

If you can find a way to join us in Washington, D.C. please follow this link to register for the march, https://bothendsburning.org/initiatives/the-step-forward-for-orphans-march/. We will then keep you up-to-date with a weekly email.
