DESCRIPTION

The purpose of this five-city tour is to raise awareness of how childhood trauma impacts the development of 1 in 4 children in the U.S. and how these often-overlooked experiences can adversely impact children’s development, physical and emotional health. November is National Adoption Month, an important time to recognize that adoptive children and those in foster care are at significant risk for Developmental Trauma. All proceeds from this campaign go to three non-profits who serve this population: ATTACh, Attachment & Trauma Network, and American Adoption Congress.

At the conclusion of the morning activities. We will board the bus to Capitol Hill for the thirteenth annual Adoptive Family Portrait Project from 2:00PM-4:00PM.
