Many Faces, Many Lives:  Celebrating the International Adoptee Community!

April 29 – May 1, 2011

We want to extend a warm invitation to all Also-Known-As members, families and friends to celebrate our 15thAnniversary with us from April 29, 2011 to May 1, 2011!  For those from out of town, this is a great opportunity to see old friends and meet new ones while exploring New York City. For those of you who are in the area and may have been out of touch, there’s no better time than now to reconnect with Also-Known-As! For 15 years, Also-Known-As has provided services to international Adoptees, their families and friends, and we could not have continued to develop our diverse programs without your endless support. Please join us to celebrate all that we have accomplished!

The rates are $159/night for 1 Full Bed (1-2 People) and $189/night for 2 Full Beds (3-4 People).  For those of you planning a longer stay,, rates will be available from April 24, 2011 to May 3, 2011 (5 days prior and 2 days following the 15th Anniversary).

Interested in presenting at our conference?
As an integral part of our Anniversary, we are calling for proposals from scholars, artists, activists, and other professionals who were adopted internationally or interracially for a one-day conference entitled, “Past, Present, and Future”. All intercountry, transnational, transracial, and international adoptees are encouraged to submit proposals for papers, presentations, performances and workshops. This will be a forum to showcase the breadth and depth of adoptee work and talent.  For more information on proposals submissions, please contact Geanna Barlaam at
