Empowering our Communities & Advancing Justice

Adoptees for Justice is an intercountry adoptee-led organization whose mission is to educate, empower, and organize transracial and transnational adoptee communities to achieve just and humane adoption, immigration, and restorative justice systems. We believe in a world where every person thrives in a safe and supportive environment in which communities of color, immigrants, and adoptees are liberated from all forces of injustice, with full citizenship for all. Our first project is to educate, organize and advocate for an Adoptee Citizenship Act that is inclusive of all adoptees.

Imagine learning as an adult that you are not a U.S. citizen after believing for your whole life you were.
Imagine getting deported from your family and home because the process failed you.

Many of us know someone who was adopted from another country. Over 500,000 children have been adopted by American families since the end of World War II. Many of our adopted family members, partners, friends, and co-workers did not have their U.S. citizenship secured when they were children.

Tell Congress to SUPPORT the Adoptee Citizenship Act of 2019 (H.R.2731). Signatures will be delivered by Adoptees For Justice, an adoptee-led organization.
