I'm lucky enough to live in a region that is largely supportive of breastfeeding rights. I entered into this scene that was set up, fought for, petitioned and won over by many an oppressed and frustrated mother before me. Still yes, harassment in public happens far too often, but in my city of Houston we enjoy regular breastfeeding-friendly awareness events, local support by way of writers and sponsors and vendors and women's healthcare workers, and lots of options for La Leche League meetings and other in-person connections for new mothers. This is NOT the case everywhere. Some states and cities and countries need more help than others kickstarting the official protections of breastfeeding families. PLEASE SIGN these three petitions and share on your social media. Deadline is August 1st. Every vote matters!
