We are so excited to announce that we have launched our first Kickstarter campaign today! It is called the Nursing in Public Task Force Website.
As you know, the ladies at the San Diego Breastfeeding Center are fierce advocates for protecting a woman's right to breastfeed in public. This is exactly why we created the San Diego Nursing in Public Task Force in 2013. Too many local moms had been discriminated against and shamed for breastfeeding their babies outside of their homes and we just couldn’t stand by silently anymore!
In these past 2 years, we have helped over a dozen women mediate nursing in public harassment incidents, as well as countless of others to remedy discriminatory incidents on their own. We feel like the time has come to expand these resources… to help breastfeeding women and businesses/organizations across the country uphold their state laws that protect the rights of breastfeeding mothers and stop these discriminatory acts.
So, how can you help?
Today we launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a national Nursing in Public Task Force website. The money raised will pay for a website designer, content creation, and a photographer/videographer for the website. We would be extremely grateful if you would take a few moments out of your day to look at the Kickstarter project. If you feel like this sounds like a worthy cause, please consider donating and share with your friends (by forwarding this article and sharing on Facebook). Know that you will be making a difference in thousands of women's and children's lives, as well as creating more tolerant and supportive communities across our country.
