Join adoptive parents, adult adoptees and Spence-Chapin staff members for an open discussion about adoption, race, and identity. Our conversation will focus on racism and discrimination experienced in the Latinx community and promoting a positive identity formation for adoptees of this birth culture. This event is open to adoptive parents and prospective adoptive parents. The event will take place via Zoom and will be a facilitated group-based discussion.
We will be joined by a featured guest, Rachel Perez.
