 Announcement:

 The Minnesota Breastfeeding Coalition is proud to support Breastfeeding: A Vision for the Future, a new initiative of the United States Breastfeeding Committee. Based on evidence, the Vision is aimed to increase awareness of the importance of breastfeeding and the support needed from all sectors of society to achieve our national breastfeeding goals. The Vision draws attention to the gaps in U.S. policy and outlines nine crucial objectives that must be met to fully address the barriers faced by mothers.

 Sign on as an Individual. USBC’s goal is to reach 15,000+ individual supporters of the Vision, before launching it as a tool to support media and legislative advocacy efforts. Add your voice to demand action by signing on at www.usbreastfeeding.org/Vision. Your support helps USBC to make a lasting impact towards the social, environmental, and institutional change needed to support our Nation’s mothers.

 Sign on as a Local Breastfeeding Coalition. USBC has invited national organization members and partners to sponsor Breastfeeding: A Vision for the Future. Local breastfeeding coalitions are also invited to sign on, but without the financial sponsorship component. Donations from coalitions are always welcome, of course, but we know that many coalitions have limited budgets! Visit the link below to sign on to the Vision as a local breastfeeding coalition:
