Let's Talk: Transracial Adoption & Foster Care and its Lifelong Impact
So often, we only hear 1 story, 1 narrative, and 1 perspective that shapes our understanding and view of transracial adoption and foster care. But there are many different expereinces and perspectives from those of us who have lived experience in these systems and as people who hold these identities. This is why hearing from more of us is critical. If we want to create more belonging and inclusion for transracial adoptees and foster care alumni in our workplaces, our neighborhoods, schools, and society, we need to hear from those with lived experiences.
This "Let's Talk" event hosted by The Inclusion Initiative will feature two amazing guest speakers with lived expereinces as transracial adoptees and their perspectives on what it means to be a transracial adoptee and what's important for society to know about their experiences.
Listen to this incredible conversation with our Founder, Grace Yung Foster, and our two very special guest speakers:
Stephanie Venneri is a Voice and Life Coach, Speaker, Mental Health Advocate, & a Transracial Adoptee, and Anthony Walsh, JD, is Author of the "Hockey Is for Everybody" series, Director of Charles & Jay LLC, & a Transracial Adoptee
Do you know or identify as a transracial adoptee or foster care alum? Are you a parent who's fostered or adopted? What are your thoughts about The Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA)? Are you generally curious about ICWA and want to learn more?
