ZERO TO THREE, Think Babies partners, and thousands of advocates across the country are sending a clear message to Congress: Babies build America.
To stay strong, America needs to invest. In infrastructure. In the economy. In the health and safety of our communities. But there’s one investment we’re neglecting that pays dividends in all those areas and more: babies.
Yet opportunities to grow and flourish are not shared equally by all infants, toddlers, and families, reflecting past and present systemic racism and barriers to critical resources. If our nation is to thrive, we must ensure that every baby has what they need to reach their full potential.
When babies and toddlers have good health, strong families, and positive early learning experiences, it creates a stronger society for all of us. Their growth is America’s growth. It’s time to Think Babies because babies build America.
