Multiracial Students and Transracial Adoptees Finding Their Place in Racial Justice Activism

PC 33

While student activism on college campuses is not new, there has been a resurgence of highly-publicized campaigns in recent years. Multiracial students can struggle to find their place in current racial justice movements. Content will be joined at the intersections of multiracial identity and student activism, integrating multiracial and transracial adoptee identity development. Ways in which monoracism and multiracial microaggressions can shape multiracial and transracial adoptees’ placemaking in racial justice movements will also be addressed.
