HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS VIDEO:

Rita Soronen is the President and CEO of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. For more than 30 years, she has worked on behalf of vulnerable kids from local to national levels to find them permanent homes. She is a highly visible advocate appearing frequently in media from CNN to the Globe and Mail. Her five14 talk is titled Unadoptable in Unacceptable.

Five14 Talks started in response to requests from young people in care to have a greater voice in shaping public perceptions. The Children’s Aid Foundation created five14 Talks to celebrate Children and Youth in Care Day (May 14, 2015) to give young people in child welfare a voice and and inspire change. five14 Talks is a forum much like TED Talks, where Canada and the world’s leading thinkers in Child Welfare are invited to give a talk in 14 minutes.
