Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) will speak at the 2017 Annual Adoption Day Celebration being held tomorrow, Saturday, November 17, 2017, from 10:00 a.m. – noon, at the Moultrie Courthouse (500 Indiana Ave. NW).  The annual event celebrates the adoptions of children in the District of Columbia.  At the event, a D.C. Superior Court judge will announce the new last names for over twenty children as they are received by their new parents.

“Virtually every year since becoming our city’s representative in Congress, I have taken great joy in celebrating Adoption Day,” Norton said.  “Over the years, our city has significantly reduced the number of children in foster care, which is emblematic of a city with a big heart where children come first.”
