The evidence is clear that the policies and systems that shape and influence our lives have a significant and lasting impact on infant feeding outcomes. Too often, policy decisions have a population-level impact yet do not take into consideration the needs of infants, their mothers and lactacting parents, and their families. For decades, the lactation field has come together to identify policy barriers and gaps and push for change. This session will review the U.S. Breastfeeding Committee approach to organizing stakeholders for policy, systems, and environmental change efforts, describe strategies for creating legislative change and share about USBC policy priorities for the 118th Congressional Session.

Join the USBC’s Cheryl Lebedevitch, Senior Policy and Communications Manager and Amelia Psymthe Seger, Deputy Director of the U.S. Breastfeeding Committee on January 11, 2:00pm ET for this session.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify key components of Collective Impact
  • Adopt a stance of inclusion, curiosity, and trust-building across groups of difference
  • Utilize tools for collaborative change
  • Describe key steps in the legislative process
