Adoptees are the experts in their lived experience! We the Experts present a monthly panel with a specific theme to amplify adoptee voices.
We the Experts is an adoptee-centered space where adoptees and others are invited to sit in community to listen to a myriad of lived experiences. Non-adoptees are invited to attend as listeners and learners only.
Each panel is recorded and sent to registrants with a list of resources after each event. Topics have included: LGBTQ+ and Adoptee Identity, Adoptees and Reunion, Transracial Adoptee Identity, Adoptees & Substance Use, Birth/First Parents, Adoptees and Religion.
We hold WTE once a month, and WTE Ally events quarterly. WTE Ally events feature non-adoptees from birth parents to adoptive parents, adult children of adoptees to partners of adoptees.
AWESOME!!! Please note we request non-adoptees sign a “Non-Adoptee Waiver” certifying their primary intention is to listen and learn and agree to NOT engage in the chat or submit questions to the panelists.
Attendance fee is $10 for adoptees, $15 for non-adoptees. No adoptee is turned away due to financial hardship. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about the adoptee community support fund.
We have dozens of event recordings available for personal purchase.
