Leverage the voices of your community

National Adoption Day is celebrated across the country in hundreds of local communities. Supported by businesses, individuals, local government officials and faith-based organizations, events at the local level can help build awareness of adoption issues and the thousands of children in foster care who are still waiting for their forever families.

It’s not too late to submit a letter to the editor of your local newspaper to share the importance of National Adoption Day, along with details about your community’s celebration. By doing so, you will help raise awareness about children in foster care and will multiply the efforts of other cities across the country to build support and momentum for National Adoption Day.

A template letter-to-the-editor is in the event organizers toolkit. Please submit your letter to the editor to your local newspaper no later than Thursday, November 13.
