Breastfeeding Rights Association seeks Council Members/Volunteers

Aim:  To encourage employers in the private and public sectors to mandate employees are trained on the rights of breastfeeding mothers.

Methods: Boycott companies that discriminate against or infringe on breastfeeding moms rights until company policy has been changed, letter writing/blogging campaigns, promotional materials.

Why:  We believe breastfeeding is a natural act and a birthright.  Children and mothers should not be discriminated against for breastfeeding in public and should expect their legal rights to be observed.

A long time ago, ok not so long,  discrimination based on race, age, sex, or disability was okey-dokey in the workplace.  Until people like you and me stood up and changed it.  There use to be no such things as handicap accessible entrances or restrooms (checkout the film Music Within, btw!).  Change doesn't happen by accident.

How you can help:
1.  Apply to join the Council - We are looking for a group of women and men passionate about Breastfeeding Rights to create campaigns, maintain our website, answer advocacy emails, maintain public relations, handle financial records, etc.  If you are interested, please contact me or leave a comment below.
2.  Create promotional materials - have a talent for graphic design, writing, or web design, we want to create dynamic promotional materials as well fundraising products.
3.  Help design the website - we'd love someone to design a fabulous website to help us keep people up to date on our progress
4.  Grab our button - raise awareness by putting our button your blog or website
5.  Spread the word! - tweet, facebook this, blog about it, tell strangers on the street, you get the idea
