Transracial Caregiving Workshop


with Angela Tucker

Calendar Oct 19, 2020 at 3 pm

THIS IS A TWO PART CLASS (October 19th AND October 26th).

Children of color are overrepresented in child-welfare. The reasons for the disproportionality are many, including the systemic bias and unconscious racism among people who report children to the child welfare system, caseworkers and the general public.  It is critical that caregivers understand this history in order to avoid perpetuating racism and to instead embrace an anti-racist outlook to support the health and wellbeing of the children of color and transracial adoptees. 

Transracial caregiving is a multifaceted journey for the entire family, but it is often the child who bears the brunt of navigating the complexity of the experience. The nuanced perspectives of transracial children are often overlooked in White-dominated spaces, including school communities, society at large. This workshop will provide a window into these first-hand narratives through videos featuring first-hand perspectives and stories.


This is a TWO PART class: 

PART 1: October 19th

PART 2: October 26th
