Korean Adoptee Worldwide Network

We are devoted to listening to the needs of adopted Korean people, progressive activists, artists, educators, grassroots human rights organizations, and long lost family members who want to bridge the cultural gap by sharing stories, and resources, and is built around progressive discussion.

Through global and community outreach, we validate and support the experiences of like-minded activists. We (the people) are the ”task force” that will generate progress and the respect we deserve.

If you believe that all humans should have the right to all information that pertains to them, or that identities should not be altered and sealed without one’s knowledge, and that all individuals should have the right to their (blood) family of birth, then you are invited to join.
