Sh*t People Say to KADs: A Discussion on the KAD Identity Development

When: Saturday, February 25, 2012
What time: 3:30-5:30pm and dinner to follow
Where: Hwa Sun Ji Tea & Coffee 3960 Wilshire Blvd (private room)

“Why don’t you speak Korean?”

“Where are you from? No, where are you really from?”

“Do you remember Korea?”

“Are you from North Korea or South Korea?”

“Oh wow you were adopted from Korea?! My friend’s cousin’s sister’s niece is adopted from Korea! Do you know her?”

Do you quotes sound all too familiar to you as a Korean adoptee? Why can’t we KADs jump on the “Sh*t People Say” bandwagon too?! How have these types of statements informed the person you are today?

Join us for a discussion on the journey of Korean adoptee identity development where we will engage in dialogue around what it means to be a Korean adoptee. Come out to share, learn, listen, and eat afterwards at a TBD location in Koreatown.
