The Big

TO END PREVENTABLE STILLBIRTH

October 15th, 2022

Washington, DC

Picture it: 23,000 empty strollers, parading past the steps of Congress - one for every child lost in the past year.

It's time to show the nation what 23,000 babies looks like. Join us.

We've come together to say enough is ENOUGH.

Stillbirth steals the lives of 65 babies every single day in the US.

Many of these deaths are preventable.

These babies are our babies. We are THEIR VOICE.

And we will not be silenced.
