Asian American adoptees meet to challenge anti-Blackness
August 30, 2020 @ 2:00 CDT - 3:30 CDTFree
A free virtual event on how Asian American adoptees can challenge anti-Blackness will be held in three 90-minute sessions over three consecutive Sundays in August. How Asian Adoptees Can Support Black Lives Matter, sponsored by AKConnection and the Network of Politicized Adoptees, will consist of a moderated panel, discussion about identity, racial consciousness, how white supremacy shows up in our society, and how to apply an anti-racist lens to one’s life.
AKConnection is a Twin Cities organization of adult Korean adoptees and their families. Co-sponsor, the Network of Politicized Adoptees is an organization of transnational adoptees which holds events to move forward an agenda to improve the lives of transnational adoptees with community power.
Session Three, on Sunday, August 30, facilitated by Soojin Pate, entitled How to Be an Anti-Racist Adoptee, will cover how Asian American adoptees can activate an anti-racist lens in everything we do, including interactions with coworkers, friends and family members, and how to have these potentially-difficult conversations
