American Adoption CongressThe American Adoption Congress is an advocacy organization promoting legislation and ethical professional practice that encourages connection between adopted people and their birth families.

Their mission statement reads:

The American Adoption Congress is comprised of individuals, families and organizations committed to adoption reform. We represent those whose lives are touched by adoption or other loss of family continuity.

We promote honesty, openness and respect for family connections in adoption, foster care and assisted reproduction. We provide education for our members and professional communities about the lifelong process of adoption. We advocate legislation that will grant every individual access to information about his or her family and heritage.

The AAC is often critical of current adoption practice and works hard to educate the public about these issues in part through their national conferences. In 2013, this conference will take place in Cleveland Ohio so this is your chance to take part in this terrific educational opportunity. You can learn more about the upcoming event here.
