CCAI newsletter and legislative update

CCAI just released our August 2011 Newsletter and Legislative Update.  A few highlights from this month’s edition include:

  • Fifteen exceptional former foster youth leaders from across the country released a comprehensive report on the system in which they were raised, The Future of Foster Care: A Revolution for Change.  Topics covered include immigration, education, mentoring, psychotropic drugs, child abuse, and government accountability.
  • We need your help to encourage elected officials on a local, state, and federal level to promote National Adoption Day taking place on Saturday, November 19th.  Government officials can attend a local event, issue a proclamation, issue a press release, or post their support for foster care adoption on their twitter page.  Click here for a drop-in letter you can personalize and send to your elected officials.  Be sure to refer them and their staff to our NAD resource center.
