Before We Were Yours
by Lisa Wingate

Based on one of America's most notorious real-life scandals--in which Georgia Tann, director of a Tennessee adoption organization, kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country--Lisa Wingate's riveting, wrenching, and ultimately uplifting tale reminds us how, even though the paths we take can lead to many places, the heart never forgets 
where we belong.

Mission to Washington
Wednesday, April 25, 2018

NORPAC's Mission to Washington is an annual event where we bring close to a thousand citizen activists to Washington, DC, in order to advocate for a stronger U.S.-Israel relationship with Members of Congress. 

Mission attendees are bused (or can use their own transportation) to Washington in the morning, and arrive at the Warner Theatre where they attend a brief plenary session with presentations by Congressional leadership. Afterwards, individuals converge to their assigned groups - usually of 4 to 6 people - and meet with Members of Congress and their staff to discuss this year's talking points regarding pressing legislation on U.S.-Israeli concerns. 

The event wraps up the same day in the early evening, and transportation is provided to get back home.
