5th National GrandRally: Building a Community of Hope - Washington, DC
Generations United is thrilled to announce plans for the 5th National GrandRally: Building a Community of Hope on May 10th 2017, in Washington DC. The National GrandRally is a highly visible gathering of grandfamilies and their fellow advocates to elevate the critical role grandparents and other relatives play in providing safe, loving, permanent families for children and the policy changes needed to effectively support them while building and strengthening a community of hope.
The previous four GrandRallies effectively educated policy makers about the unique needs of the families and created momentum to pass key policies such as Fostering Connections for Success and LEGACY intergenerational housing. Even more importantly though, the GrandRally builds and strengthens a national network - a community of hope - recognizing and celebrating the essential role that relative caregivers play in providing permanency for children and youth.
It provides an important opportunity to educate Members of Congress and their staff, the media and the general public while inspiring relative caregivers to raise their powerful voices in Washington, DC and back in their home states.
