Strolling Thunder 2021
Babies from all 50 states and DC have a message to deliver to Congress:
Push babies to the top of your priority list!Join the virtual rally on May 17
Strolling Thunder Is Back – and Virtual!
Do you know a family who wants to turn their Members of Congress into champions for babies? Then we need your help!
As Congress makes decisions about how to promote our country’s recovery, they have an opportunity to invest in the foundation that will make the biggest difference to our future: babies. That’s why ZERO TO THREE is again connecting babies and families to Congress through Strolling Thunder™, an event to bring national attention to what babies – and families – need to thrive.
This year, ZERO TO THREE will host a virtual Strolling Thunder on May 18, 2021. We will connect a parent/guardian and a baby or toddler (under the age of 3) from every state and DC with their Members of Congress for a virtual conversation about the experience of raising young children and what families need to support their baby’s healthy development.
No prior experience necessary! We are looking for families who see themselves as advocates – whether that means speaking up for their child’s needs or contacting an elected official about an issue important to their family. ZERO TO THREE will provide selected families with training and support for their virtual meetings with their Members of Congress. Interest forms are due on March 5.
