Dear Supporter,

When Congress makes budget decisions each year, it is determining whether or not babies and families receive the resources and supports they need to thrive. It’s time to tell Congress to Think Babies and Act!™ when funding programs for babies and families! The Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, which has jurisdiction over many of the issues that impact infants and toddlers and their families, is scheduled to mark-up their FY19 Appropriations bill the week of June 25. This important process will play a major role in determining whether families have access to quality child care, early intervention services, nutritious foods and other critical supports that help babies get off to a strong start.

We need you to Be a Big Voice for Little Kids™ and make sure that the Senate makes babies their priority as they make funding decisions for next year! Mark your calendars for June 21 and join advocates across the country for a Think Babies and Act! Day of Action. Stay tuned for guidance on how to participate via social media and email.
