Strolling Thunder New Jersey 2020 -
A Virtual Rally for Babies!

Telling the story of New Jersey’s babies is more important than ever.
How we care for our babies today shapes our state and our nation's future.
Although we couldn't make our stroll to Trenton this year, we raised our voices to remind state leaders to make babies and their families a priority.
