[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Angela Tucker will be hosting a two-part web series for August’s Monthly Parent Training. The information in these trainings will build on top of each other, so it would be ideal if you signed up for both parts. Part 1 will be on August 4th and part 2 will be on August 11th.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Angela Tucker was born in Tennessee and immediately became a ward of the state, she was diagnosed with Spastic Quadriplegia and labeled a “Failure to Thrive.” Angela remained in foster care for over a year, eventually being adopted by a white family in Bellingham, Washington – a city where just 1% of the population is Black. She has seven siblings – all adopted except for one and had many foster siblings, foreign exchange students, and extended family who also lived in her home. Her unique upbringing encouraged an expansive and inclusive definition of family and that led to her mission: to center adoptees.
Adopting, fostering, and/or caregiving transracially requires caregivers to have sustained and healthy discussions about race and culture. The training includes facilitated discussions about privilege, implicit bias, and microaggressions.
Learning Objectives: Define racism, microaggressions, colorism, stereotypes, and implicit bias in relation to transracial adoption.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”12497″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][vc_column][vc_column_text]Join these TWO events that circulate around the topic of transracial adoption and amplifying adoptee voices. Angela’s topics are broad-reaching and will be relevant to families exploring race and racism within our culture and in your family, topics relevant to foster youth and adoptees and how to authentically parent and support our children. Both sessions are really interactive with breakout room discussions included in the seminars.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]
