Ellie Conant Memorial Fund

In memorium of Ellie Conant, a longtime KAAN friend and contributor who died in 2016. Ellie played an important role in a number of conferences, bringing her own brand of style and heart. In reflecting on her connection with KAAN Ellie said,"...I always thought: 'I’m Korean but not adopted; I don’t want to crash a crucial space meant for adoptees...what I’ve learned and have had the privilege to share is that there is a profound parallel between the hapa and adoptee experience."


The Ellie Conant Memorial Fund supports the voices of queer, biracial, and/or multiracial people by sponsoring KAAN conference costs for speakers of these identities. Gifts to this fund will help keep Ellie’s spirit and legacy alive through an organization she strongly endorsed. CLICK for document download.
