Social Justice and Ally-ship: An Anti Racism Series for Adoptive Parents
September 16, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
A 6-part anti-racism series designed for adoptive parents of BIPOC kidsAbout this Event
In late May 2020, George Floyd was killed by a police officer in Minneapolis. His death sparked a worldwide movement acknowledging deep, painful anti-Black racism in North America. In late May 2020, popular YouTube blogger Myka Stauffer “rehomed” her child, Huxley, a person with intellectual disabilities, after adopting him from China.
If you’re parenting a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Colour) child through transracial adoption, it can challenging to speak with your children about these incidents. You might be wondering how to take action that positively impacts your child, how to discuss adoption-related topics with your kids, and how to be anti-racist in your life and your family.
This six-part series will:
- educate you on social justice and allyship,
- guide you through owning your role and responsibility as the parent of a BIPOC child,
- discuss how to show up as an anti-racist advocate in your life, family, and community,
- provide insight on how to shape your child’s community as one that is anti-racist and inclusive, and
- have conversations with your child about social justice, human rights and the history of adoption.
