Live Webinar: Why It’s Important to Have Conversations About Race

April 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


In this webinar, Rhonda Roorda will share her extensive knowledge about why race matters in transracial adoptive families. She’ll explain some of the history of transracial adoptions and why it’s important to talk about race within our families. A goal of this webinar is that you will have some ideas of how to talk with your children (or children you work with) so that they know that you’ll have their back when trauma around race happens. In addition to personal experience, Ms. Roorda has written four books about transracial adoption which draw on the experiences of transracial adoptees, adoptive parents, adoptive siblings and Black Americans.
