          Write a letter to your MLA 

ARMS has embarked on a letter writing campaign to our state member's of parliament.

 

We are requesting that the state government of Western Australia;

  1. Remove the statute of limitations for ALL survivors of forced adoption (mothers & adult adopted persons)

  2. Instigate redress and greviance mechanisms

  3. Implement the suite of recommendations stated within the 2012 Senate Inquiry.

  4. Allow adult adoptees to access (without cost) the revocation of their adoption, integrated birth certificates and the inclusion of their fathers name on their original birth certificate, free from complicated processes.

  5. Implement a parliamentary inquiry in the policies and practices of forced adoption from the unique West Australian context.

Sample letters are attached below which can be used to help guide your letter writing and to even copy and paste. You can write to your local member, to any of the representatives which are listed below AND highly recommend writing to the minister who oversees our portfolio; the HON. Simone McGurk.

We need your support to help us bring much needed legislative change.
