Babies took over Capitol Hill to rally for paid family leave and affordable childcare

On Tuesday (May 8), Capitol Hill was crawling with babies.
Babies from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, along with their families, had descended upon the Hill’s east lawn for the annual “Strolling Thunder” Rally, organized by Zero to Three, an early childhood development non-profit. The rally is part of Zero to Three’s “Think Babies” initiative, which urges Congress members to consider the needs of young children and their families in their policy-making.
