Supporting education and innovation.
Supporting education and innovation is crucial for the growth and development of society. Education allows individuals to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in their chosen fields, while innovation drives progress and improves the overall quality of life. By investing in education and encouraging innovation, governments, organizations, and individuals can work towards a brighter future for all.

Multiethnic, Multiracial, and Transracial Adoptee Concerns Group
The purpose of the Multiethnic, Multiracial, and Transracial Adoptee Concerns Group (MMTAG) is to provide information that will enable AMCD to promote education, engagement, research, community-building, and resources related to multiethnic, multiracial, and transracial adoptee individuals and communities within the counseling/counselor educator profession and the clients/students we serve. We strive to raise awareness of multiethnic, multiracial, and transracial adoptee concerns and to cultivate a network for AMCD members who identify with more than one ethnicity, race, and/or heritage and their accomplices and co-conspirators.
