Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

Breastfeeding USA supports an ongoing commitment to diversity, equality, and inclusion in our support of individuals, families, and communities and within our organization. We are committed to serving all families and will not tolerate discrimination based on race, ethnicity, social class, age, size, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, family type, religion, national origin, military status, or culture. We know that we can best fulfill our mission of providing evidence-based breastfeeding support and promoting breastfeeding as the biological norm when our volunteers and leaders reflect the broad range of communities we serve. Breastfeeding USA seeks to address historical disparities in breastfeeding both internally through ongoing assessment of our policies and practices and externally through advocacy, education, and legislation at the community, state, and national level.
