Press Release 2017

Nationwide Nurse-In Scheduled at locations across the country  Friday, April 28, 2017 Contact: Laura Delmonico via email at nationwidenursein@gmail.com

The 3rd annual Nationwide Nurse-In is an event to bring attention to breastfeeding laws to help end public breastfeeding and workplace pumping discrimination and harassment. 

This year is particularly important following the executive action to repeal the ACA which provides mothers with time and accommodations to express breastmilk at work. Mothers may again be dependent on their state laws to provide workplace pumping time and accommodations. Unfortunately nearly HALF of our states do not have workplace pumping laws and even fewer have laws that provide adequate protections. This leaves many thousands of working mothers vulnerable! 

The event takes place across the United States at State Capitols and other law enforcement locations. 

Mothers will be at their respective locations nursing their babies in response to widespread breastfeeding law violations and the lack of appropriate public and workplace pumping/breastfeeding laws and enforcement. 

 Please spread the word and join us for this peaceful rally.
