The 2016 Conventions are here and it’s time to Rally4Babies! Young families have pressing questions for the presidential candidates – let’s find out if they have the answers. The Republican National Convention starts today, and the Democratic National Convention follows next week (July 25-28). Use ZERO TO THREE’s website to tweet questions at Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and make your voices heard!

Young families are facing challenges—working hard to feed, clothe, and house their children, finding affordable, quality child care, and setting aside precious time to nurture their children’s development. Families want to know how the next President will support their efforts to contribute to the economy and the next generation. The nearly four million babies born in the U.S. every year represent the future of our country—our future workforce, parents, leaders, and innovators. How we invest in their health and well-being will determine our nation’s long-term productivity and success. As early childhood professionals and advocates, we want to know how the candidates plan to support families in getting their infants and toddlers off to a great start in life, because that’s when our nation prospers most.
