World Breastfeeding Week Event
NYS Assemblywoman Aravella Symotas is co-sponsoring an event with UP-STAND to bring attention to World Breastfeeding Week and urge passage of her bill — the Family Accommodations in Entertainment Act. The latch-on event – Sustaining Breastfeeding Together– will be on Wednesday, August 1 at 9am to 10am at Columbus Triangle located at the south east stairway to the Astoria Boulevard subway station.
UP-STAND will be providing a diaper changing/potette area as well as diaper changing and lactation supplies. Please bring lawn chairs or anything else you need to feel comfortable.
Christine Yearwood of UP-STAND states “the purpose of World Breastfeeding Week is to highlight the benefits breastfeeding brings to babies and to advocate for better maternal health policy.”
