The 5th National GrandRally2017:
Building a Community of Hope
Washington DC May 10, 2017
Grandparents and granddaughters who traveled to the GrandRally2017 met with legislators and emphasized the importance of supporting Federal programs which help grandfamilies including the Kinship Navigator Act and TANF. Legislators listened and gained a better understanding of the needs of grandfamilies for the some 119,000 grandchildren being raised by grandparents in the state of Mississippi. The weather was HOT, HOT and lots of walking but well worth the visit. Grandparents rode public transit for the first time and we had many unique parking experiences.
