In celebration of National Breastfeeding Month (NBM) 2015, the USBC will host a social media advocacy campaign inviting breastfeeding coalitions, member/partner organizations, and individual supporters to join a variety of online actions and conversations to raise awareness and advocate for the policy and practice changes breastfeeding families need. Each week the campaign will focus on a specific sector or system of support with an aligned legislative/policy goal. Weekly Twitter chats, Twitter “target tools,” and advocacy action alerts will inspire education and action to support breastfeeding families from the grassroots to the treetops!
