Day For Adoptee Rights – More Coverage

A few blogs from folks who participated in Day For Adoptee Rights. I really wish there was more media coverage about this (wish more I could have gone).

  1. It is a shame that the march did not get more media attention. But perhaps next time it will.

    Yes, it would have been nice to get more media attention but the problem with the media is they skew and twist things. Kali was interviewed for almost an hour and none of the important facts about birth records and discrimination got covered – the reporter went elsewhere to get her story about reunion. Funny, the public wants to read about reunion but they also don’t want to let it happen.

    Planning is already underway for next – it will be bigger and better and hopefully you will be able to be among us.

  3. I’ve had that experience too – trying to get the point across to reporters, only to have it completely ignored. The viewpoints of adopters and adoption professionals are far more popular – how many articles have we see lately about people unable to adopt from Guatemala or Vietnam? Yet I have seen exactly two mainstream media articles about DAR: the one in the Times-Picayune, and the one from New York about the parallel Rochester protest. Has there been anything other than that? It’s sad that it hasn’t been mentioned more in the media.
