An important part of what ICAV does is help adoptees connect to one another, share lived experiences and create a safe space where we can be together. ICAV also provides an educational space to share our experiences to the wider community. To achieve this goal, we host a number of online events to allow our members and the community a chance to connect through online zoom groups and webinar events.
