In the middle of the day, more than 400 people gathered for a stroll around the Capitol grounds. Matthew Melmed, executive director at ZERO TO THREE, joined Rep. Rosa DeLauro, Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, Colonel David Osborne from Council for a Strong America, and Jamie Bussel from RWJF to address the crowd.

Barbara Bremner is the executive director of Early Childhood Iowa in Polk County—and a member of ZERO TO THREE. She has a special interest in policy issues for little kids, saying: “What gets me going is being able to spread that interest.” So at the Rally for Babies at the Annual Conference in New Orleans last December, she was excited to hear about ZERO TO THREE’s new partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), the Think Babies™ campaign, focused on making babies a national priority.
