The Congressional Coalition on Adoption (CCA) is dedicated to supporting legislation and policy that improves the lives of children and families in the United States and around the world. The CCA is deeply committed to bipartisanship and brings together Democrats and Republicans with the shared goal of ensuring all children know the love and support of a family.
The bipartisan, bicameral leadership of the CCA serving as its Co-Chairs are:
- Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO)
- Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)
- Representative Robert Aderholt (R-AL)
- Representative Donna Shalala (D-FL)
The CCA is the largest, bicameral caucus in Congress. It offers a wide range of policy initiatives and holds numerous events throughout the year to engage Members of Congress and their staff on adoption and foster care policy and programs. Over the last 25 years, CCA Members have led Congress in the passage of historic legislation that has positively impacted the lives of children including The Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997, the John Chafee Foster Care Independence Act, the Promoting Safe and Stable Families Act, the Hope for Children Act, and the Intercountry Adoption Act.
CCAI is excited to annouce Representative Donna Shalala as the new House Democratic co-chair of the Congressional Coalition on Adoption. See CCAI's full annoucement here.
