Strolling Thunder™

Join us on Tuesday, April 9, 2024, for our Strolling Thunder event at the Alabama State Capitol!

At Strolling Thunder, you’ll raise your voice for babies and their families in a FREE, family-friendly setting. This event celebrates wins at the legislature, brings attention to what families need to thrive, and helps participants connect with their state and local elected officials. We will start the morning off with a press conference with Governor Kay Ivey on the Capitol Front Steps and then “stroll” to the South Lawn where there will be activities for children and information for adults on helping young children thrive.

Have the opportunity to speak with your state and local elected officials and help bring awareness to babies 0-3!

Strolling Thunder is the flagship advocacy event of Think BabiesTM. It’s a day when babies, toddlers, and their families meet with their policymakers and urge them to Think Babies—for stronger families, vibrant communities, and a prosperous country. Strolling Thunder focuses on policy solutions that ensure all babies and families have what they need to thrive including good health, strong families, and positive early learning experiences. This year we are having our own Strolling Thunder event in Alabama to help families connect with state and local elected officials and raise a voice for babies!
We invite all who advocate for young children to join us to help bring awareness to the vital investments needed in programs for Alabama’s children from birth to age 3. Parents, grandparents or guardians of children 0-3 across Alabama are encouraged to attend with their child! You will be responsible for your child for the duration of the event.
