This is a call for panel speakers on interracial families for the Adoption Council of Ontario's Spring Adoption Resource Exchange (ARE), on April 5th.
This is a biannual conference held by the ACO to bring together all members of the adoption community, primarily domestic but including an interracial/international focus.
This is an opportunity for many families beginning the adoption process to consider if international/interracial adoption is for them.
It is therefore an excellent opportunity to spread awareness around issues of racism and identity.
If you have an interesting story to tell or take an angle on your lifestory that you think adopting families need to know, please contact us at CKAN or go directly to the Program Manager for the ACO, Kristen Maynard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
