Call to Action: Kentucky Legislation Supporting Breastfeeding

Please show your support for two proposed breastfeeding laws that are up for review in the current legislative session! Senate Bill 35 attaches penalties to violating a mother’s right to breastfeed, and Senate Bill 36 provides increased protections for Kentucky mothers to express milk in the workplace.

  • Email BreastfeedingLINK@gmail.com with your stories of discrimination in public or difficulty in the workplace.  We need these stories to educate legislators as to why these protections are needed in Kentucky.
