Advocacy In Action

PABC members visit the Pennsylvania Capital in Harrisburg annually to talk to our legislators about the importance of breastfeeding and policies or legislation that helps families succeed at breastfeeding. Come along and help us to support breastfeeding as the cultural norm.  Help us remove some of the obstacles faced by women who want to breastfeed their babies by personally informing your legislator about important upcoming bills. YOU can make a difference! Due to Covid our day was cancelled in 2020.
