Join us on November 29, 2021, to hear from a diverse panel of adoptees as part of our continuing commitment to Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging in the Adoptee Community.
Join Erica Babino, the Adoptees United Leader of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DIB), as well as AU board members Anthony Walsh and Chelsey Wright, who will talk about identity, personal experiences, and what it means for them to be genuinely seen and heard. We’ll also be joined by additional guests, including Shelise Gieseke, a transracial Korean adoptee and the assistant director of Adoption Mosaic, and Kris Rao, a late discovery intercountry adoptee and author of the blog Indian Late Discovery Adoptee. Some of the questions participants will address include:
- What mistaken assumptions about you do you hear from other adoptees?
- Are affinity groups important to you and were they hard to find?
- What would you like to change within the adoptee community?
Note: This event has already occurred. A recording of it will be posted to the Adoptees Untied YouTube channel once it is processed and released.
Other Upcoming Events

Join us on April 27 to discuss next steps of the Wikipedia Editathon project, including which Wikipedia subjects to tackle and how we will plan logistics, resources, future get-togethers, and editing sessions.
