Rally4Babies Event Highlights Importance of Investing in Early Learning

July 2, 2013

Join more than a dozen national organizations, including Child Care Aware® of America, on Monday, July 8, for Rally4Babies, a virtual event to raise visibility for and support the importance of a comprehensive early learning agenda; one that begins at birth. Sponsored by ZERO TO THREE, this national event – under the tagline “Learning Happens from the Start” – will mobilize advocates nationwide to support early learning investments that begin with babies and toddlers.

The virtual rally, from 2-2:30 p.m., Eastern, will be hosted by journalist Soledad O’Brien via ‘Google Hangout.’ Several VIP guests, including actress and Save the Children Artist Ambassador Jennifer Garner, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, U.S. Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan, and children's musician Laurie Berkner, will take participate.

The rally is being held in conjunction with the Strong Start for Children coalition in an effort to get people talking about the importance of early learning, age birth to 5. For more information and to join the virtual rally, click here. You can also sign the petition to show your support.
