Julayne Lee was given up for adoption in South Korea as a result of the Korean War. She was adopted by an all-white Christian family in Minnesota, where she grew up. She has spent over fifteen years working with Overseas Adopted Koreans (OAKs). She lived in Seoul and now resides in Los Angeles, where she is a member of the LA Futbolistas and Adoptee Solidarity Korea - Los Angeles (ASK-LA). She is also part of the Adoptee Rights Campaign working to pass the Adoptee Citizenship Act to ensure all inter-country adoptees have US citizenship. NOT MY WHITE SAVIOR is her first book.

Healing Through Writing the Unsaid: A Workshop for Adoptees and Foster Alum of Color

  • Korea Center 1362 Post Street San Francisco, CA, 94109 United States (map)

AKA-SF is thrilled Julayne Lee will be joining us for a second time to lead a writing workshop and discussion for Adoptees and Foster Alum of Color.

Our voices matter, yet are often silenced by adoption and/or whiteness and sometimes this occurs within our own adoptive families. Through writing & discussion, we’ll reflect on our journeys as adoptees and foster alum of color and how we navigate our identities. You’ll have the opportunity to share your writing with others in the workshop if you so choose (sharing is optional).
