Rep. Sara Feigenholtz and Screening of A Simple Piece of Paper

Monday, June 19, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Members & guests – free.

What happens when a state provides adopted citizens access to their original birth certificates? Join us to hear how Rep. Sara Feigenholtz and a Village member were personally affected by the law and for a screening of the documentary A Simple Piece of Paper, which examines the impact of the release of these records, following a handful of the first people to access their record. Their heartwarming – and heartwrenching – stories provoke a new question: what would have happened if the state of Illinois had been able to do this sooner. Discussion will follow.
