Local Breastfeeding Supporter Meetings
MIBFN and Local Breastfeeding Supporter Meetings are intended as a space for MIBFN, local breastfeeding supporters, and statewide partners to share, listen, and learn alongside each other as a way of informing each of our statewide and local breastfeeding support strategies. We hold one another accountable for ensuring that this, and all breastfeeding spaces, are safe for the families and breastfeeding supporters who are most marginalized by our current systems.
We are so thrilled to share with you that we have received financial support from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Obesity Prevention Program via the CDC-SPAN grant to convene the next nine monthly Local Breastfeeding Supporter Meetings. We cannot wait to share space with you, learn what you have been working on, and deepen our service alongside you to advance the movement for breastfeeding equity and justice throughout Michigan.
As before, the meetings will be on the third Thursday of each month with the first meeting scheduled for February 15th from 12-1pm EST.
MIBFN collaborates with organizations and individuals to bring about actionable, system-level changes that are centered on the diverse experiences of Michigan families with young children. Meetings are open to breastfeeding supporters in Michigan – we are continuously working to widen our circle, with a focus on centering marginalized families.
