Get Ready for the Great Nurse-In!

After months of anticipation, the first-ever Great Nurse-In is happening THIS Saturday, August 4, on the West Lawn on the U.S. Capitol Building!  With a mission to normalize nursing for today’s society and future generations, the event welcomes everyone — nursing moms, fomerly nursing moms, non-nursing moms, partners, children, friends, community members — who wants to support the cause.

I originally posted about the event several weeks ago, and since then more festivities have been planned, including a Launch Party taking place at The Tabula Rasa on Capitol Hill, tomorrow, August 3. From 9am –  6pm, you can stop by for boobie cupcakes and swag bags for the Saturday celebration, and to mingle with other breastfeeding supporters.

Tomorrow is also the Great Nurse-In’s Action Day, when many GNI attendees will be visiting their Congress members to solicit support for a federal breastfeeding law.  Participants can pick up talking points for their scheduled meetings at the Launch Party.

As for Saturday’s big event, there will be guest speakers, a Big Latch-On assembly, children’s performers presented by the Boogie Babes, open mic sessions, and more.  The program schedule is available here.

And if you can’t make it to the Great Nurse-In, you can visit the website to find out other ways to show your support.
