Isaac Etter

Isaac Etter is an activist and social entrepreneur. Isaac was transracially adopted at the age of two. He is a transracial adoption and racial bias consultant at Etter Consulting, a consulting firm Isaac founded in January of 2019. Isaac has a passion for helping families and adoption agencies learn about racial bias and create inclusive homes. Recently, Isaac has co-founded an education and advocacy organization, SafeHouse Lancaster, where he is the co-executive director. Isaac also serves as a board member for The Lancaster LGBTQ+ Coalition. They are also a frequent speaker in many different settings, including colleges, adoption agencies, and conferences.

Isaac has used his story of being adopted and growing up in a white world to curate deep conversations about race in America. With his unique insight on racial tensions between the white and black communities, they have been able to curate impactful conversations where everyone learns to value each other and their experience, while learning about systemic racism, privilege and their role in it.
