Happening at the Bethaday Community Learning Space in White Center on Friday (July 27th): Strolling Thunder, Washington State! Here’s the announcement:

The Children’s Alliance is bringing babies, parents, communities, and advocates together to call attention to what babies—and families—in Washington need to thrive. Giving all babies a strong start in life yields significant returns in the long run through more years of education, more employment, and better health as an adult. We’re hosting a Playdate with community and policymakers in White Center at the Bethaday Community Learning Space to raise awareness amongst advocates and state policymakers to Think Babies—for stronger families, vibrant communities, and a prosperous country and future.
