Adoptee Citizenship Campaign
MPAK is excited to hold this event to campaign for Adoptee Citizenship Rights.
We strongly support that all the adoptees that came into the US legally through adoption should be granted the citizenship. Korean Women's International Network (Kowin) Pacific LA group has joined MPAK in co-organizing this event. The event is sponsored by the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Los Angeles, and the Overseas Korean Foundation (OKF).
Current Status of the Adoptee Citizenship Act of 2021- sometimes called ACA or ACA21 for short—was included in the America COMPETES Act of 2022, which was passed by the House in February 2022. However, in March 2022 the Senate took up the COMPETES Act and revised it and passed their own version of the Act, which did not include the adoptee citizenship act, and passed it back down to the House. The House disagreed with the Senate's version of the Act. Party leaders in the Senate and House have now appointed more than 100 conference committee members to work out differences between the two bills.
