5th National GrandRally: Building a Community of Hope!

May 10, 2017

The 5th National GrandRally is around the corner and registration is now open! The GrandRally for grandparents and other relatives raising children will be on May 10, 2017 on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. It is a wonderful opportunity to elevate for Members of Congress and the public the critical role relative caregivers play in providing safe, loving, permanent families for children and the policy help they need to effectively support them. It is also energizing for the relative caregivers, who come from across the country, to meet each other and know they are not alone. After the rally at the Capitol, delegations go on to meet with their Senators and Representatives to share facts about children being raised by relative caregivers, the permanency they provide and the help they need to be successful helping the children in their care thrive.  We encourage you and others from your communities and states to join in the celebration and help spread the word! If you can’t attend, perhaps you can help support a delegation of caregivers.  Please view the GrandRally’s State Contact page for more information on groups traveling to D.C. from your state.
