How to Plan a Nurse-In After a Discrimination Incident

1. Create a public event on Facebook. 

 

2. Share your story in the description.

 

3. Add a cover photo. 

 

4. Set a time and date, it's best to do it within a week or two of the incident. 

 

5.  If it's a particularly volatile situation, consider hosting your nurse-in in front of the business on public property. Businesses are legally allowed to ask you to leave if you are trespassing on their property or causing a disturbance with your presence. However, they may not ask you to leave because of breastfeeding (exception Idaho). 

Breasts are Multifunctional

Recent discussion has people nationwide taking sides. Are breasts primarily for feeding children, or are they for sexual play?

We stand with both groups. But how?

Breasts are multifunctional, like other parts of the body.

Using breasts to nourish a child is normal and acceptable in public. Grabbing someone's breasts in public with consent usually is not.

For comparison, consider your mouth's functions. You eat, breathe, talk, and can perform sexual acts with it. All are natural. Eating, breathing, and talking are acceptable for public.
