Cultivating Racial Awareness for Transracial Families
Adopting, fostering and/or caregiving transracially requires caregivers to have sustained and healthy discussions about race and culture. The workshop, led by Angela Tucker (a nationally-recognized thought leader on transracial adoption) includes facilitated discussions about privilege, implicit bias, and micro-aggressions. Participants will engage in activities to become more comfortable talking to others about race and culture, particularly within the framework of transracial adoption. As a transracial adoptee herself, Angela will share her personal experiences to support a deeper understanding of the lifelong impacts of racial awareness and the transracial adoptee. Teaching modalities include facilitated discussions, lecture, video, open dialogue and structured activities.
