BREASTFEEDING ADVOCACY 101 TRAINING
Breastfeed LA is proud to present a full day of advocacy training designed for those who work with and advocate for breastfeeding moms and families. This training is brought to you in part by BreastfeedLA and cosponsored by ACLU Southern California, California Women's Law Center, and South LA Health Projects.
Breastfeeding is a national priority backed by federal and state laws that protect a mother’s right to breastfeed in public, in the workplace, at school, within the judicial system, and during medical care. Our expert speakers will provide a close look at the current laws, the protections they provide, and where they fall short. You'll receive hands-on advocacy practice, a comprehensive Breastfeeding Advocacy Toolkit, and continuing education credits.
Learn to advocate for breastfeeding rights, so all families can meet their breastfeeding goals.
Registration is free and includes the Breastfeeding Advocacy Toolkit, plus continuing education credits. You can purchase an optional Breakfast and Lunch package for $15.00.
Objectives:Following the didactic presentations, participants will be able to:
Describe general breastfeeding and lactation rights and current laws that support breastfeeding
Identify special situations and circumstances where legal help is advised
Identify and provide resources to support breastfeeding rights
Effectively advocate for breastfeeding rights
