ACTION ALERT, Briefs you need to read #Baby Veronica

Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl & Cherokee Nation Respondents’ Briefs

by Matthew L.M. Fletcher

NICWA urgently requests your immediate action on three time-sensitive matters regarding Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl, an ICWA-related case before the U.S. Supreme Court that has potentially sweeping ramifications for all of Indian Country far beyond issues in child welfare.  All supporting amicus briefs in this case must be filed by Thursday, March 28, 2013. For months, the Tribal Supreme Court Project, of which NICWA is a part of, has coordinated the development of these briefs. With one week until they are due, we seek your help in getting more tribes and states to sign on in support of the Respondents in this case, the Brown family and the Cherokee Nation.  
Please take the following actions below immediately and share this message with your personal networks.
