Advocates for pregnant women, babies and toddlers came to the State Capitol this week for Colorado’s first Strolling ThunderTM event. The rally, march and baby playdate were held simultaneously with the national event coordinated by ZERO TO THREE as part of the national Think Babies campaign. The Children’s Campaign was proud to co-host the event with Clayton Early Learning and we’re grateful to all the parents, babies, partners, and organizations who came out to talk about issues that affect our littlest constituents. Special thanks to Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne for opening the rally, Meagan for sharing her story about Nurse-Family Partnership, and Crystal Munoz from Roots Family Center for sharing the importance of having a network of support for parents.

The event drew 20 play-date partners, including Junior League of Denver, Colorado Libraries, Colorado Children’s Hospital, Happy Baby Organics, Remembrance Yoga, Colorado Department of Public Health WIC program, WeeCycle, and more. Performances from Seven Falls Indian Dancers, singer Rachel Taulbee, and Kalama Polynesian Dancers helped us open and close the day with grace and beauty.

View photos of the event on our Facebook page, and stay tuned to KidsFlash for future Think Babies events.
