Shout out for FUSION!
About two years ago, I attended the White Privilege Conference. For those who may not follow social justice issues, the title for the conference may seem a bit strange. But, rest assured, this conference brings in big name speakers and has amazing workshops around all sorts of social justice themes.
It was there I first encountered a group called iPride based out of the San Francisco Bay area. One of their board members was leading the WPC Youth Leadership portion of the conference.
I signed up to receive their e-newsletters, and what should appear in my Inbox this week, but a notice for the FUSION program for Mixed Heritage Youth. I'm so thrilled to see this kind of program in place, "supporting multiracial, multiethnic and/or transracially adopted youth and their families."
MUST give a shout-out to the FUSION program - check it out!
