Virtual Rally to Lend Support to Early-Childhood Programs

By Julie Blair — July 02, 2013 1 min read

Thousands of children’s advocates and more than 20 nonprofits will hold a virtual rally July 8 to support public policy that aids babies and toddlers as Congress debates funding for early-childhood education programs.

The meeting, entitled Rally4Babies: Learning Happens from the Start, aims to offer information to the public about the early years and gin up signatures for a petition in support of Early Head Start, home visitation programs, and other early years programs to be delivered to the White House and Congress.

Celebrities including actor and Save the Children Artist Ambassador Jennifer Garner, and children’s musician Laurie Berkner; presenters will include U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, and Chair of the Board at America’s Promise Alliance Alma Powell will present.

The event, put on by the Washington-based nonprofit Zero to Three, can be found through Google+ Hangout at http://rally4babies.org/community.
