#FlipTheScript: Centering Adoptee Voices Within Reproductive Justice

Within reproductive justice movement spaces, conversations about adoption are often centered on the rights of potential adoptive parents, especially LGBTQ people & same-sex couples, single people, disabled people, and/or people of color. Where are the adult adoptees in these discussions? How has the language of "equality" been appropriated to promote an agenda that excludes adoptees' voices and the social conditions that lead to transnational adoption? What are the ways in which adoptees' rights to connect to their first and birth families are ignored when we are not included? Join two queer Korean adoptees for a discussion at the intersections of race, gender, and sexuality to complicate and critique current narratives about adoption, rights, equality, and justice.
