AAJA Presents “Untold Stories of Korean Adoptees”
What does it mean to be an adoptee from one of the world's largest adoption programs?
Join the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) and Also-Known-As (AKA) for an evening of fascinating personal stories of Korean adoptees in honor of National Adoption Month.
Emmy award-winning journalist Dolly Li will screen her recent Al Jazeera (AJ+) short documentary "Why Are So Many Korean Americans Adopted?" and then lead a fireside chat with NYC-based adoptees about recent and surprising revelations about their histories, both in the U.S. and in Korea.
Our speakers will include Rebekah Mason, Peter Robinson, and Also-Known-As President Michael Mullen, who will explore topics such as relinquishment and reunion, returning to Korea as an LGBTQ person, and current political issues in intercountry adoption. Snacks will be provided. Email Dolly Li if you have any questions.
