August is National Breastfeeding Month. This campaign is sponsored by the United States Breastfeeding Committee hopes to educate and empower women to breastfeed their babies. This health observance started in 2011 with this proclamation that details the goals and objectives of educating Americans about the importance of breastfeeding.
This year, the United States Breastfeeding Committee is hosting a social media advocacy campaign to raise awareness and promote advocacy action alerts to support breastfeeding. In particular, the committee is focusing on changing the way people view breastfeeding at work, in the community, and among black culture. Below you'll find more details and links describing the focus of each week of the campaign.
