General Session
From Words to Action. Breastfeeding Support for ALLL: We live in diverse communities but often the parents seeking support from La Leche League are not as diverse as our communities. Let’s roll up our sleeves and explore opportunities to improve our quest to meet the La Leche League mission and vision of inclusiveness within our respective communities.
