About the Annual AFAAD Gathering:
AFAAD holds an annual Gathering for Adult Adoptees and Foster Care adults of African descent. The purpose of our annual Gatherings are to make connections, network, provide healing space, and to celebrate the diversity of our amazing diaspora of transracial, international, domestic adoptees and foster care survivors.
The Gathering is a weekend of discussion, sharing research, workshops and informational sessions about multiple topics, the personal and global politics of adoption and the impact of family disruption on the global black community.
AFAAD Gathering is for adoptees and foster care alumni of African descent only, with one public education event open to the larger community and adoptive families.
