Advocates for Children of New Jersey chosen to lead a statewide effort to bring attention to what babies and families need to thrive in the state.
NEWARK, N.J.— New Jersey has been selected as one of six states to take part in the Think Babies campaign, supported by national early childhood advocacy group ZERO TO THREE. The five other states selected include Colorado, North Carolina, Georgia, Rhode Island, and Washington.
The Think Babies campaign is designed to bring national attention to the many issues that affect what babies and families need to thrive. Key campaign priorities include: quality, affordable child care; time for parents to bond with their babies; healthy emotional development; and strong physical health and nutrition. Read more.
Among the initial activities of the campaign will be New Jersey’s “Strolling Thunder” event on May 21, 2018, which will bring families and early childhood advocates from across the state to Trenton to remind policymakers that success for our children begins at birth. This event is modeled after ZERO TO THREE’s national Strolling Thunder, which will be held earlier in May in Washington D.C.
Help us make this day a success.
