Before a child is born, every mother commits to provide the best for her baby, to nurture their baby’s mind and development, to give them the most perfect nutrition available, and to protect them from childhood infections, cancer, and death. So why do so many women choose not to breastfeed?

Protesting for 20/20 Vision

Are YOU a part of the protected class?

Elements that contain, or evoke distorted concepts of an equitable America are disruptions to society’s 20/20 vision for social justice…we CANNOT allow them to move forward. We see headlights, but they’re blinding us…they must be turned off! We see police, but SOME stand united in terroristic behavior…they must be held accountable!
