Celebrating 20 Years of Protection for Nursing Mothers

It's the 20th anniversary of the passage of NYS' law protecting a mother's civil right to breastfeed her baby in any public or private place, Section 79-e


In 1994 a mother visiting a mall in Latham NY, took a break from shopping to nurse her baby.  A security guard told her to stop breastfeeding or leave.  Mothers rallied their support and organized a nurse-in. This is their story.
