Gift of Life NFP Mom & Program Ambassador To Represent Alabama At Strolling Thunder
MONTGOMERY, AL - Gift of Life Nurse Family Partnership mom and GOL CAN ambassador AnDrika Harmon has been selected to represent the state of Alabama at ZERO TO THREE’S Strolling Thunder on the nation’s capital on April 30, 2019.
AnDrika and her baby Zion will join families representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia to meet members of Congress in Washington D.C. and share with them what babies and families need to thrive, including affordable child care, paid maternity leave, nutrition, and programs that support social/emotional development of babies. They will also participate in a rally on the East Lawn of the Capitol and will have lunch at the White House.
AnDrika was selected based on a short video that she entered on ZERO TO THREE'S Strolling Thunder's Website. ZERO TO THREE will pay the cost of her flight and hotel accommodations.
This is one of many accomplishments AnDrika has made in GOL’s NFP program. Last year, she was featured on NPR’s Story Corps where she discussed the need to preserve funding for the SNAP Program for working families. She also had an opportunity to meet with Congresswoman Martha Roby at the Gift of Life office to discuss the need for affordable childcare and money and resources for early learning programs.
She participates in NFP with Nurse Home Visitor Kristi Gay.
