[Part 3] The Intersection of Transracial Adoption & Racial (in)Justice

April 17 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Please join Angela Tucker for a three-part webinar series designed for adoption agencies (staff and families), child-welfare organizations and conferences.

Transracial caregiving is a multifaceted journey for the entire family, but it is often the child who bears the brunt of navigating the complexity of the experience. It is critical that caregivers and parents understand the history of why children of color are over-represented in child-welfare in order to avoid perpetuating racism and to instead embrace an anti-racist outlook to support the health and wellbeing of transracial adoptees and/or transracial foster youth. This workshop will provide a window into the nuanced first-hand narratives of adoptees through videos, anonymized case studies and Angela’s personal stories. This interactive workshop will leave you thinking about the role transracial adoption plays in our quest for racial justice in America.

Transracial Adoptee Panel: Facilitated Discussion between Angela and a transracial adoptee panel. Question & answer session offered.
