FCC Capital Area, China’s Children International (CCI), and the Adoptee Alliance of Georgetown are hosting an event on Thursday, October 1st from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT to discuss the ways in which COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement have impacted our perspectives on race.
This event is open to adoptees, adoptive parents, and supporters, with a suggested age of 16+. We are following up from our first event on this same topic.
Registration will close 24 hours in advance. You will be emailed a Zoom link upon registration and at least one reminder email.
The first part of this conversation will take place in a fishbowl format: adoptees in the inner circle will discuss their perspectives regarding race, while adoptive parents listen on the outside of the circle; the circle will then switch and adoptive parents can share how they have been supporting their children and being allies at this time.
The second part of the conversation will be a group discussion about how the Black Lives Matter movement has changed our perspectives on race.
Below are three articles to read before the event to prepare and reflect about these matters:
This conversation is intended to be a space to share and process our unique experiences. We will be speaking from personal experiences. Please respect that all personal information that is discussed is to be kept private and not to be shared outside of this forum. This event will NOT be recorded.
