We are happy to have April Dinwoodie as our guest speaker on Sunday, November 17 at 7pm as part of National Adoption Month. April’s topic is “Born in June, Raised in April: What Adoption Can Teach the World.”

April will be discussing the importance of healthy identity development, building strong relationships, navigating differences of race, and differences in class and culture – April will provoke thought and reflection about what it truly means to be a family.

April dedicates her life to ensuring that children feel safe and families are strong. She is the founder of AdoptMent – a mentoring program that matches foster youth with adopted adults in New York City. She works with several NYC schools, facilitating adoption affinity groups for young people and parents as well as helping educational professionals to better understand adoption and foster care.

Please join us for an informative evening.
