On Friday, July 27 from 10 am – 12 pm, parents, babies and toddlers will meet up to stroll around Lakewood Park with local policymakers to talk about issues, policies, legislation that affect families and young children.
Things like quality affordable childcare and parental leave for the important time needed to bond with your baby.
It’s called Strolling Thunder and it was started by the organization Zero to Three and now takes place in cities across the US, and with a national day in Washington DC. Strolling Thunder™ is an advocacy event and part of the Think Babies™ campaign.
At PEPS, we support parents and their new families with peer support in the early weeks and months of welcoming a new baby. We Think Babies all the time, and so do parents. This event is a day when babies, toddlers, and their families meet with their policymakers and urge them to Think Babies™ for stronger families and vibrant communities.
The event will start at TAF Bethaday Community Learning Space, located at 605 SW 108th Street Seattle, WA 98146. Register online.
