The logo/brand of Mixed Roots Foundation was created from the original artwork of the poster that was drawn in 1997 titled “Mixed Roots – Mind Your World”. You can view the poster on the main History page.
Staying with the concept of “Mixed Roots – Mind Your World”, the fundamental values of Identity, Diversity, and Unity, were incorporated.
The brown root signifies IDENTITY:
Identity is to know oneself (Who are you?)
The multicolored roots (red, yellow, blue, and green) signify DIVERSITY:
Diversity is to know others when you know yourself (What are you?)
The global multicultural adoptee community including their birth, foster, adoptive, and cultural families
The brown and yellow roots united at the top signify UNITY:
Unity is to bring unity within yourself and amongst others (Where are you?)
In order to bring unity, you need to know and serve other people
True Unity through Collaboration and Partnership for Real Change Together
