What a day for babies! Strolling Thunder New Jersey was a HUGE success. Parents, clergy, advocates and lawmakers spoke about what babies need to grow and thrive such as affordable quality child care, more generous paid family leave and healthcare services.
This is just the beginning of more to come. The rally is part of a campaign that will continue to remind our lawmakers to #ThinkBabies when making decisions.
Thanks to the many families, partners and volunteers who helped make this day a success!
