Think Babies Campaign

(The information in this post is duplicated from an original ZERO TO THREE e-newsletter received 3/5/18.)


ZERO TO THREE’s Think Babies™ campaign is working to make the potential of every baby a national priority. You’ve helped them start 2018 off with a bang, urging the Administration and Congress to #ThinkBabies during the State of the Union and calling on Congress to support quality, affordable child care. And on May 8, families and babies descended on the nation’s capital as part of Strolling Thunder™, meeting with their Members of Congress to share what families with young children need to thrive.

Decisions that impact babies and families happen at all levels of government, and not just on Capitol Hill. That’s why ZERO TO THREE is partnering with leading children’s advocacy organizations in six states to bring Think Babies and Strolling Thunder closer to home. In 2018, they will work with Colorado Children’s Campaign and Clayton Early Learning; GEEARS: Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready StudentsAdvocates for Children of New Jersey in partnership with Right from the Start NJChild Care Services Association in partnership with North Carolina Early Education CoalitionRhode Island Kids Count; and Children’s Alliance in Washington.

ZERO TO THREE will work closely with these partners to develop and implement campaigns to advance policies that benefit infants-toddlers in their states, including:

  • Increasing access to affordable, quality child care for infants and toddlers;
  • Creating paid family leave policies providing full or partial replacement of wages after birth or adoption;
  • Increasing access to infant and early childhood mental health services;
  • Increasing access to voluntary, evidence-based home visiting for families with infants and toddlers;
  • Increasing access to child and family screenings, supports, and linkages to needed services; and
  • Increasing access to healthy nutrition and obesity prevention initiatives for infants and toddlers.

ZERO TO THREE will keep you updated on the progress of Think Babies partner states, including ways to get involved.
