AntiRacism Online Workshops for Transracial Adoptive Parents

去年,我跑了一个 网络研讨会 关于跨国和跨种族被收养者与种族主义的经历,以帮助提高认识并作为一个社区表达这些共同经历。为了进一步解决我们社区在这方面缺乏资源的问题,我通过 关系澳大利亚 小额赠款和助学金计划 聘请 色调, a lived experience company who specialises in anti-racism workshops. Together, Hue and ICAV are offering a much needed space for adoptive parents to discuss, raise awareness, and process some of these issues involved in race, racism, and intercountry / transracial adoption.

Our workshops are free and will be provided as a three part series, as an anti-racism program tailored specifically to Australian intercountry and transracial adoptive parents. Parents from other countries are welcome to join, understanding that the program is being delivered from an Australian perspective (but still relevant to other countries) and in an Australian timezone. Each workshop is capped at 40 to ensure maximum benefit for participants.

The first workshop in the program will cover an introduction to race and racism, developing our understanding and critical thinking around systemic racism and injustice. The second workshop will explore whiteness or white dominant culture, and the ways that our attitudes, and ways of life are impacted by these cultural systems, particularly in an intercountry adoption context. Adoptive parents will complete their series with a workshop on allyship, developing skills for challenging racism when they see it, and supporting their adoptive children through their experiences.

以下是有关 Hue 及其协调人 Elsa 的一些信息,我曾与她合作定制这些研讨会以适应我们的社区体验:

养父母研讨会的关键日期是:7 月 23 日、8 月 6 日和 8 月 20 日澳大利亚东部标准时间下午 1 点开始。每个工作坊持续 3.5 小时,中间有休息时间。通过小组分组讨论鼓励输入和参与。这不是一个坐下来听的研讨会,但如果你觉得这样做很舒服,那也没关系。
