I have designed this workshop to cover some of the most essential things I personally believe adoptive parents need to understand and apply to their everyday lives to be better prepare for raising/adopting transracially. In this workshops we will cover:

  • Racism 101: What is is, how to spot it, how to react, and why colorblindess doesn't work. 
  • Privilege: What it is, what it isn't, how to identify yours, and how to use yours.
  • Diversifying The Family: How to create a truly multicultural family, racial mirrors, traditions, and finding a good place to live.
  • Transracial Experience: Understanding what a transracial adoptee is dealing with.

Learning Objectives

In this workshop we get into the nitty gritty of privilege. Understanding your privilege and how to use it, is the essential first step in combating racism and (in my opinon) the most important concept to understand if your are raising children of color. In the this workshop we will cover the following topics. 

  • What privilege is.
  • What privilege ain't.
  • How to identify your privilege.
  • How to use your privilege.
