On Thursday, February 22nd, GEEARS: Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students hosted its seventh annual Strolling Thunder. This event gave families from around Georgia the opportunity to speak personally with elected officials about the joys and challenges of raising young children. We came together to send a clear message: To build strong families, vibrant communities, and a prosperous state, our lawmakers must prioritize young children.
