Multiracial Heritage Month 2024

Multiracial Heritage Month at UMD takes place every March, and is one of the first in the nation. We spend the month honoring the identities, stories, and histories of mixed-race, multiethnic, and transracial adoptee individuals.

This year's theme is about self-determination in terms of identity ("I get to decide who I am") and activism ("we get to decide who we are''). By boldly stating "I AM" we defy the pressure on multiracial and transracially adopted people to qualify and explain our identities in fractions and percentages, or using 'but's and 'however's. Multiracial and transracially adopted people are whole and full representations of all their respective identities - full stop. We also highlight agency, action, and autonomy to describe the fearsome power of multiraciality and transracial adoptees as agents of change and activists working towards building a more just world.
