Join us to urge our policymakers to Think Babies!

ACNJ needs you to bring your baby to Trenton on May 21st, to stroll in front of the State House Annex and tell Governor Murphy and the Legislature that we want them to make babies a higher state priority!

There are no do-overs in early childhood. From birth to age 3, the brain grows faster than any other point in time, laying the foundation for the rest of a child’s life. Strolling Thunder New Jersey aims to bring attention to what our youngest children need to thrive: quality child care, healthy starts for babies and support for their new parents.

The first 200 registered families will receive a $50 gift card IF they bring a child under the age of 3. One gift card per family. Click to download and share a parent flyer in English or Spanish.

In early 2018, New Jersey was selected as one of six states for the national “Think Babies” campaign, bringing attention to what babies and families need to thrive.
ACNJ was chosen to lead the statewide effort and will spearhead its first event, Strolling Thunder New Jersey in Trenton on May 21st.
