Local Moms March in D.C.

WHO: Katy Zeanah (left) and Sue Borchers Zeanah with their children, Henry, 4, and Ruby, 2 months

WHERE: Their home

WHEN: Dec. 18, 2017

THE BACKSTORY: All working parents understand the challenges of child care—from finding a quality program you trust to choosing one that fits your budget.

Katy Zeanah and Sue Borchers Zeanah took the opportunity in May 2017 to travel to Washington, D.C., with parents from all 50 states to raise legislators' awareness of those challenges and urge them to focus on the needs of young children. The trip was organized by Zero to Three, a D.C.-based nonprofit that aims to improve the lives of babies and toddlers. Henry, then 3, accompanied them on the trip. They have since added Ruby to their family.
