Nov. 15th 2018
"USBC's Interim Executive Director, Amelia Psmythe is dropping off materials and/or meeting with key policy makers from both sides of the aisle to call on them to help pass breastfeeding policy solutions before the 115th Congressional Session comes to a close.
While she's there, help the [United States Breastfeeding Coalition (USBC)] demonstrate just how much their constituents care about breastfeeding issues!"
There is still plenty of time for Congress to pass legislation that can make a big difference for breastfeeding families!
