On June 30, 2022, eight adoptive parent board members rotated off Chinese Adoptee Alliance (formerly Families with Children from China Greater New York)’s Board of Directors to make way for Chinese adoptee board members and allow for the board to be managed primarily by Chinese adoptees. 

The transformation of our organization will be an ongoing process that includes a need for an updated logo to reflect our organization’s new name. We’d like to extend an open call for individuals to develop a new logo that encompasses our organization and its goals. 

About CAA:  From the 1990s until now, the nonprofit organization Chinese Adoptee Alliance was formerly known as Families with Children from China Greater New York. Founded by a parent support group in Manhattan, the group expanded to a nation-wide network, with members including are adoptive parents, Chinese adoptees and their relatives, and friends of the organization. Starting fall 2022, FCCNY will be transitioning to Chinese Adoptee Alliance (CAA). An ongoing process, CAA will be an adoptee-centered nonprofit organization that serves the greater Chinese adoptee community and the global community of adoptees. We strongly believe the name change embodies our core mission to connect, support, empower, educate, and empower. 


The updated logo should represent Chinese Adoptees and their allies. The logo should encompass our mission statement located on our website: 

  • CONNECT & SUPPORT Chinese adoptees, adoptive parents, and families formed through adoption from China

  • EMPOWER adoptees to explore their unique identities, race, and Chinese heritage; families to understand and support them

  • EDUCATE about adoptee experiences, adoption issues, and parenting adoptees

  • ADVOCATE for adoptees and adoption communities
