August is National Breastfeeding Month, and August 25-31 is Black Breastfeeding Week. In this report, we outline the barriers to breastfeeding that communities of color face, as well as recommend policies and practices to address racial inequity in First Food.
From our pioneering welfare reform work to our forthcoming green jobs policy bank, Race Forward draws from our extensive nationwide network of community organizers and activists to examine and promote Model Policies. We advocate for state and local policies that address existing racial disparities and that promote racial equity and justice. Know any that we should be keeping our eyes on?
