Event description

Description

Families, friends, and members of the community are invited to join the WI Adoption & Permanency Support Program's screening of the documentary, "Living on the Fault Line, Where Race and Family Meet."
Film summary, according to their website:
Living on the Fault Line, Where Race and Family Meet is a documentary film that explores the intersection where family love meets racial injustice in the experience of transracial families created through adoption. An honest open-hearted look at race in America, it is an intimate portrait that reveals the challenges transracial families face as children of color grow up in communities where racial discrimination, stereotyping and white privilege are often unspoken and undeniable realities.
Shot in a naturalistic style, Living on the Fault Line profiles nine families telling the untold story of transracial adoption, revealing the complex, challenging and emotional costs of racial discrimination brought into the privacy of the family. Inherent in the film's content is an examination of racial identity
development, of the habituated misconceptions of "race" and of the damaging effects of white privilege.
