February 5, 2021 - Fertility Equality: MHB's Advocacy and Research Forum

MHB is partnering with Resolve: the National Infertility Association and Equality NY to set an ambitious agenda for removing financial obstacles for surrogacy by promoting an LGBTQ-equitable definition of "infertility," working to expand surrogacy applicable insurance for IVF, egg donation, maternity and delivery; and encouraging initiatives that can make becoming a parent through surrogacy more widely affordable in the realms of taxation, employer benefits, affordable financing, and charitable donations. We invite community advocates, professionals, prospective parents and allies to hear about promising developments in these areas, and join a discussion about effective strategies and opportunities to take part in national and regional initiatives. The virtual forum will take place 5:00-6:30pm ET on Friday, February 5th, followed by a networking reception 6:30-7:30pm utilizing the specialized REMO platform.

Or they are a binational couple residing in the USA, and wish their child to be eligible for foreign citizenship of one of his fathers, and perhaps even move there later on.

Join us to learn more!
