Subj: First Community MAP Workshop!
Sorry for the late notice, but it’s time that we conduct the first of our four free public workshops! We’ll be releasing some of the data from our surveys, and it should a fun culmination of a lot of all of our hard work! Hope to see you there.
Free Workshop about the Mixed Race Experience!
MAVIN Foundation has partnered with the City of Seattle to make our city a national leader in meeting the needs of mixed race youth and families. The Community MAP (Mixed race Action Plan) Project, is a comprehensive project to help local families, schools, and social service agencies serve multiracial youth and families with compassion and competence. 1 in 6 babies born in Seattle is multiracial! If you are interested in learning more about the experiences of multiracial and transracially adopted Americans, please come participate in the first of four free discussions. This is a great opportunity to learn about important information and resources! (Refreshments provided. Wheelchair accessible. Please let us know if you need special accommodations.)
