Announcing Strolling Thunder™ 2022

We invite all who advocate for young children to walk with us, pushing babies and toddlers in strollers to help bring awareness to the vital investments needed in programs for Alabama’s children from birth to age 3. There will be events for children and information for adults on helping young children thrive. Advocates will also deliver hand-made handprints from children all over the state to our state lawmakers.
