2008 GrandRally
2008 GrandRally

On May 7, 2008, CWLA was again a proud sponsor of the annual GrandRally, held on the U.S. Capitol grounds in Washington, DC, for grandparents and other relatives raising children. Representative Jim McDermott (D-WA) addressed the GrandRally and urged participants to visit their members of Congress in support of kinship legislation. McDermott, who chairs the subcommittee in the U.S. House of Representatives with primary jurisdiction over child welfare issues, has been a leader on our issues and has held a series of hearings investigating important areas of reform.

CWLA President/CEO Christine James-Brown welcomed kinship families to Washington, discussed the history of CWLA's support for the Kinship Caregiver Support Act (S. 661/H.R. 2188), and praised grandparents and other relatives for their service to their families and to the country.
