Town Hall Meeting Aims to Reframe The Conversation About Adoption in the 21st Century

New York, NY (PRWEB) November 02, 2015

The Donaldson Adoption Institute (DAI) will launch their “Let’s Adopt Reform” National Tour in New York City on Wednesday, November 4th, 2015, 6:30 PM at the Bank Street College of Education. Just in time for the start of National Adoption Month, this first town hall is part of DAI’s “Lets Adopt Reform” initiative, which seeks to ignite a national conversation about adoption in the 21st Century to encourage needed changes and strengthen families. The town hall is free and open to the public.

Each Town Hall will open with a thought-provoking presentation from DAI, followed by a moderated panel discussion of experts and community members. They will be taking questions from their onsite and online audiences via #AdoptReform.

After nearly 20 years of research, education and advocacy from DAI and others, it’s not about not knowing what to do. It’s about exploring the bigger picture, having the transformational conversations, changing perceptions and taking action. DAI is uniquely positioned to ignite a more modern conversation about adoption today, continuing to give members of the community a voice in the effort to inspire positive change and ultimately to achieve our common goal: healthy families that strengthen all of us.

The “Let’s Adopt Reform” initiative includes new public opinion research, a four-city national listening tour and a digital platform to capture input and experiences directly from the community. Following the last stop on the listening tour, DAI will publish a landmark report that outlines key elements for reform.
