STUCK, produced by Both Ends Burning, a international adoption advocacy non-profit, that uncovers the personal, real-life stories of children and parents navigating a rollercoaster of bureaucracy on their journeys through the international adoption system, each filled with hope, elation – and sometimes heartbreak.
STUCK TOUR -- The purpose of the documentary is to help the people understand the issues and create a movement that will ultimately encourage U.S. officials to force a more supportive attitude toward international adoption.
The film will premiere in 60 cities over 80 days as we roll across the country this spring on the STUCK tour bus. While the highlight of each city visit will be the premiere of the film, Our goal is to create an all-day event with media appearances, speeches and discussions in multiple gatherings. The framework for the tour gives us the possibility to make STUCK a phenomenon.
One objective while we are on the road is to gather over 1 million petition signatures asking Congress, global leaders and President Obama to take specific actions to change the landscape of adoption. The petition will be hand-carried to members of Congress in the Step Forward for Orphans March in Washington, D.C., which will coincide with the last day of the bus tour, tentatively scheduled for May 17.
Your active involvement as a member of the tour team will support the most impactful and activity the adoption community has ever engaged in. Your efforts will help drive an increase in adoption and change the lives of countless kids for many years to come.
