“Hi, my name is [YOUR FIRST/LAST NAME] from [CITY/STATE] and I’m calling to express my support for the Adoptee Citizenship Act of 2019 House Resolution 2731 and Senate Bill 1554. This act will provide all legally adopted individuals with the citizenship they should have acquired during their adoption as a child. Currently thousands of Adoptees still do not have their citizenship and this bill would demonstrate commitment to the Adoptees and adoption community.As someone who is gravely concerned about this issue, I urge your office to support the Adoptee Citizenship Act of 2019 by co-sponsoring the bill now. Thank you.”
