About this Event
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.
Facilitated by Angela Tucker, transracial adoptee and Director of Amara’s Post-Adoption Services, 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.
If you are a child-welfare professional, this workshop will change the way you do your work. If you are a parent (adoptive, foster, prospective), this workshop will help you better understand your child. If you’re a teacher, this will help you teach more equitably. No matter who you are, this two day, four hour training will increase your empathy for all in the adoption constellation.
The workshop will take place May 25th and 26th, 5:30 – 7:30pm PST. Registration ends on May 23, 2021.
