I also want to encourage you to act NOW and join the Stuck Tour in Washington, D.C. on May 17th for the STEP FORWARD FOR ORPHANS MARCH to help make an impact for these children.



The problem is political apathy, the reason political apathy exists is a severe lack of public awareness. The STUCK tour has changed that. Now is the time to transform new found awareness into action. Our elected officials are applying their attention and energies to other issues because other groups and lobbyists have succeeded in making their issues prominent and important.


Our turn is NOW! We can move adoptable kids out of orphanages and into families if we can convince the world that these kids' lives matter. Each of us has leverage with our elected officials: our leverage is our vote. The kids we are advocating for cannot vote, so they do not have a voice. Use your vote to be their voice. Let your legislators know your vote is connected to this issue and their position and actions will influence your future voting behavior. Be bold, be persistent!



Whether or not you are able to join us in Washington, D.C.:

  1. Reach out to your local representatives to promote awareness and expose the flaws in the current international adoption system by sharing the link to the digital download of STUCK and the trailer. [LINKS: Advocate ToolkitSTUCKdocumentary.com]  
  2. Circulate the petition and encourage people to sign. [LINKS: Online petition or download PDF file]  
  3. Recruit others to attend the march and to volunteer in Washington, D.C. [LINKS: RSVP online, Facebook event or sign up to volunteer]  
  4. Help us maximize our exposure on social media by doing the following:
    • LIKE us on Facebook
    • Change your profile picture to the STUCK Movie Poster (download from on our Facebook page)
    • FOLLOW us on Twitter
    • Use the following hashtags in your social media:
      #STUCKDCMarch #StepForwardDC

Where the church exists there should be no child without family.

Together we can make a difference!

Thank you for all you are doing!
