Uprooted: Our Right to Know Our Origins - Monday Evening Speaker Series
Monday, January 24, 2022
8:00-9:00 pm ET
Uprooted: Our Right to Know Our Origins presented by Peter J. Boni
Author Peter J. Boni will discuss learning near the age of fifty that he was donor-conceived and the confusing and conflicting emotions he felt about it, his twenty-two-year search for the identity of his biological father and the siblings he discovered in the process, what he learned about the multi-billion-dollar Assisted Reproductive Technology industry along the way, and how all of it led him to advocate for a Donor-Conceived Bill of Rights. There are many parallels between the world of Assisted Reproductive Technology and the world of adoption. This talk will be of interest to all.
