Join the Academy and USBC to Advocate for Women and Children’s Health

The next quarterly advocacy day will be held on August 7 in Washington, D.C.  Academy members will be joining the United States Breastfeeding Committee for its Advocacy Day of Action.  Participate in this one-day event to advocate for breastfeeding, and women and children’s health issues with one of the Academy’s national alliance partners! 

The advocacy day will follow the National Breastfeeding Coalitions Convening (NBCC); however, attendance at the conference is not necessary to participate in the advocacy event. A registration fee of $35 includes a lunch voucher to dine in the Capitol Visitors Center, materials, briefing/training, and round trip transportation from Arlington, Virginia if needed.  For those able to attend, a briefing will be held on Sunday, August 6th from 3-5 p.m. Others can choose to participate in a preparation webinar that will be announced at a later date.  For more information, contact Sara Walz.
