It is my privilege to share first hand experiences, encourage adoptees, inspire birth-parents, educate adoptive parents and advocate for transracial adoptees within the complex and emotional adoption system. I tend to accept opportunities that elevate the adoptee voice focusing on themes around foster care, adoption, micro-aggressions, structural racism, oppression and privilege.
I have delivered plenary speeches for highly acclaimed events, including the American Academy of Adoption Attorney's annual conference, Colorado's Annual Convening of Judicial and Family Court Teams, American Adoption Congress, dozens of heritage camps, fundraisers, retreats and other functions around the nation.
TOPICS: Foster Care, Adoption Reunion & Openness
Transracial Adoption Workshop
Facilitated discussions about privilege, implicit bias, micro-aggressions and an adult adoptee panel. Teaching modalities include a mix of lecture, video, open dialogue and structured activities.
Participants will engage in activities designed to assist in becoming more comfortable talking to others about race and culture, particularly within the framework of transracial adoption. This workshop is designed to stretch one's thinking by identifying ways to work towards equality and anti-racism.
Angela is available for Skype/Facetime consultation sessions for agencies and/or individuals.
