Transracial Adult Adoptee Discussion Panel

Discussion PanelThe decision to adopt across racial/cultural lines is a lifelong commitment to exploring matters of race, confronting racism in all its forms and constantly developing new skills and aptitudes. This workshop will provide information, tools, and resources to create a sense of hope as parents explore their, future as a transracial family. This workshop is appropriate for adoptive parents, waiting parents, and professionals.

This two hour Transracial Adult Adoptee Discussion Panel, offers a rare opportunity to listen as five adoptees have an open and honest conversation about our lived experiences as Transracial Adoptees. You will have a chance to hear our recommendations and insights first hand as we share our stories.

We Will Be Discussing:

  • The Impact of Being Transracially Adopted in our communities
  • How RACE & RACISM played a role in our identity formation
  • The discovery of our RACIAL AWARENESS and racial competency
  • The DEVELOPMENTAL STAGES OF OUR RACIAL IDENTITY & how it has changed over time.
