BOSTON | MA
We have recently helped launch a local Boston chapter, in partnership with Families with Children from China, that aims to create community for adult Chinese adoptees in the greater Boston area, to connect with other local adoptee and AAPI communities, and educate allies on issues of transracial and transnational adoption. We hope to achieve these goals through social events, informal film screenings, workshops, and educational forums.
If you are an adoptee who would like more information about this, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or apply to join our Facebook Group here. You may also sign up for our Boston CCI E-mailing list to get notices about upcoming events to your email inbox.
Join CCI and FCCNE Boston for a springtime picnic at Boston Public Garden. Meet with others from the Boston-area Chinese adoptee community, and welcome in the warmer weather with a relaxing break in the sunshine.
WHO: Chinese adoptees over the age of 18. We love our parents, but Chinese adoptees only, please.
WHAT: Enjoy the sunshine with a relaxing picnic in the park!
WHEN: Saturday, April 27th, 2019 from 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM
WHERE: Meet at Tatte in Back Bay (399 Boylston St, Boston, MA) at 12:00 PM to buy sandwiches, and we’ll walk over to the garden together.
HOW: Tatte is accessible by the subway on the Green Line. Take it to the Arlington T stop.
Charlotte will be on call for the day-of if you are arriving late or have any issues finding the group.
**Rain plan: If it is raining on the day of, we’ll still meet at Tatte, but move over to Chinatown for a meal instead.**
N.B.: Food is pay-your-own-way. Either bring some favorite food from home or bring money to buy food at Tatte (or some other nearby place). Also, bring a picnic blanket if you have one! We also advise wearing shoes you feel comfortable walking in and clothes that you don't mind being outside in.
More UPCOMING MEET-UPs: Winter Film series
FCC / CCI’s Winter Film Series will bring together Chinese adoptees for screenings of recent films relevant to the adoption community and accompanying discussions on adoption, identity, race, family, and more. Join us on these cold winter days, snuggle in with hot chocolate, popcorn, and a movie, and enjoy good company, stimulating discussion, and the warmth of community.
Help us spread the word
Do you know any Chinese adoptees who live or are often in Boston and who might be interested in joining our community? Pass the word along! You can also put up this flyer that we have created to help reach out to our community.
