The decision to adopt across racial or cultural lines is a lifelong commitment to exploring matters of race and identity, confronting racism in all its forms, and developing new skills and perspectives. What role do race and racism play in your family? What are the personal experiences that inform how you talk to adopted children in your life about where they are from? How do we talk to children about important issues like race and identity, adoption, and cultural appropriation?
This is the focus of “Race and Adoption,” a free conversation with Astrid Castro on the 14th of June at 7:00pm at SE Uplift Neighborhood Coalition. This program is hosted by SE Uplift and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.
