Please join Human Rights Law Society and International Law Society in welcoming Izidor Ruckel and Kelly Dempsey from Both Ends Burning. The two speakers will discuss international adoption as a tool of child protection and child welfare. Mr. Ruckel was adopted from Romania as a child and has spent much of his life trying to provide a voice for orphans in his home country and throughout the world. He has written a book detailing his experiences and has appeared on numerous TV programs including 20/20. Kelly Dempsey is an adoptive mom and lawyer who began working in the international adoption space after her daughter got stuck in Vietnam. She has worked tirelessly to correct flaws in the intercountry adoption system and advocates for permanency for children. She has "Paper Chains," a report on the unnecessary closure of Nepal's adoption system, and testified before Congress about the adoption crisis in the DRC. Lunch will be provided.
