Community Dinner & Dialogue Series for Adoptees
The Dinner & Dialogue Series will encourage dialogue on how adoptees balance issues of race, culture, and identity.
They will be lead with a trained adoptee facilitator. The facilitator will broadly frame the focus of the group and help bring important
themes and issues to light. Through discussion, participants will identify areas of agreement and understanding.
As new insights emerge, topics should be captured and explored. This will also be part of the GATRFF events as well.
We will provide services such as citizenship resources, adoption education, and education on international adoptee laws.
This is to help advance advocating for adoptee rights and effect systematic, societal, and or legal/governmental change.
Services may include the following:
- Deportation education and resources to become a U.S. citizen, provide expert witness for adoptees being deported,
and collaborate with social justice organizations
- Creating a dedicated space for adoptees that have passed away
- Campaign for adoptees to find medical or bone marrow matches
- Access to and education regarding Adoptee laws and policies at the local, state, federal, and international levels
- Access to resources on published data and statistics on adoption; research articles, dissertations, and book-length monographs; and testimonies
- A known point of contact on global adoptee issues
