Let your voice be heard…so you are even further protected to breastfeed and pump at work!

LATEST INFO ON THE BREASTFEEDING PROMOTION ACT OF 2011:

The US Breastfeeding Committee is encouraging supporters to contact their
Members of Congress to ask them to expand working mothers’ right to
breastfeed. The Breastfeeding Promotion Act of 2011 includes two provisions that
would protect and expand working mothers’ right to breastfeed by

 
1) amending civil rights law to protect breastfeeding mothers from being
fired or discriminated against in the workplace; and

2) extending the existing federal provision to ensure that an additional
13.5 million executive, administrative, and professional employees, including
elementary and secondary school teachers, have break time and a private
place to pump in the workplace.

For more information, or to send an email to ask your Representative and
Senators to co-sponsor the Breastfeeding Promotion Act of 2011, go to
