Online Workshop: Transracial Adoption and Racial Injustice

Can You Support or Participate in Transracial Adoption AND Fight Racial Injustice?

Please join Adoption Resources and adoption educator Angela Tucker for an insightful online workshop about transracial adoption.

The adoption experience is a multifaceted journey for the entire family, but it is often the adoptee who bears the brunt of navigating the complexity of the experience. The nuanced perspectives of transracial adoptees are often overlooked in white-dominated spaces, including school communities, society at large, and even, in some cases, by their adoptive parents. Angela's workshop will allow you to learn from the experts…the adoptees themselves.

When: Wednesday, June 3, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m.

Where: Online, via Zoom video conferencing

Cost: $25 per family *Scholarships are available.

Audience: This workshop is appropriate for adoptees, adoptive parents, prospective parents, therapists, social work professionals, and media personnel

Registration: Purchase tickets on Eventbrite

Certificates will be provided for 1.5 hours of pre-adoption training.

If you have any questions, please contact Deb Shrier, LICSW at dshrier@jfcsboston.org.
