We are honoured to have the following guest speakers joining us for the community forum: 

- Bruce Richman is the founder of Prevention Access Campaign’s award-winning U=U movement, a community of over 550 organizations from 71 countries that have united to communicate the still widely unknown fact that a person living with HIV with an undetectable viral load cannot transmit HIV to sexual partners.

- Brittany Cameron is an HIV+ Mother, Wife, Peer and sits as a Canadian Representative for the U=U campaign.

- Bob Leahy is the lead Canadian representative for the U=U campaign. He is also publisher of PositiveLite.com, Canada’s award-winning HIV Online magazine.

KCAA ( Korean Canadian Adoptee Association)
Lunch, Movie and a Conversation

February 18, 2018
12:00pm to 4:00pm in Toronto.

Dear KCAA Family,

I'm excited to invite you to Lunch, Movie and a Conversation. This is a new event crafted for the adult adoptee population, and parent(s)/guardian(s) of adopted individuals.

The accessibility to adoptee stories has increased exponentially through the use of digital communication like podcasts, social media, YouTube, and the news. As this is a great way to create a global community, it also has its challenges when there isn't the opportunity to have a larger conversation around certain topics pertaining to adoption.

This is the first of many opportunities the KCAA wants to create a safe space so voices can be heard, truths can be acknowledged, and healing/support can be provided.

Please download the flyer for the event information.

There is limited seating (max 90), so please RSVP with your name and number of attendees as soon as possible. (RSVP to kcaaon@gmail.com). We are also requesting this event be 18+ due to the movie content and discussion.

Please contact Michael Thielmann (michael.thielmann@gmail.com) with any questions.

Thank you and have a great day!
Michael Thielmann
