“Hi, my name is [FULL NAME] from [CITY, STATE] [and I’m a constituent]. I’m calling to express my support for the 2019 Adoptee Citizenship Act, 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 a commitment to the adoptees and the adoption community. As someone who is gravely concerned about the issue, I urge your office to support the Adoptee Citizenship Act of 2019 by co-sponsoring the bill now. Thank you.”
