The results are in for Zero to Three’s Mobile-ize for Babies Poll! The poll asked Americans what they think elected officials should do for infants, toddlers and families during the First 100 Days in office, and what communities need to ensure young children’s healthy development. Seventy six percent of those who responded think young children should be a top priority in state and federal budgets and 74% think policymakers should increase support and funding for programs serving young children and families (e.g., cutting funds elsewhere or raising taxes). A visual of the results can be found in the attached flyer mobilize-for-babies-poll-results-visual. More information about next steps can be found on Zero to Three’s January 2013 Advocacy Calendar.
