The USBC believes that equity work with meaning and impact begins with a personal learning journey. As part of our efforts to create a landscape of breastfeeding support, the USBC will be hosting virtual identity caucuses to allow individuals of the same identity to be in community with one another. While prejudice affects everyone, the ways in which we are affected, and thus the work that we have to do to address prejudice and oppression is different. Identity Caucuses allow us to meet separately to do our different work. Some of the products that have come out of these groups include position statements and policy groups that meet monthly. These facilitated safe spaces can be used to share stories and strategies toward solidarity and liberation, as we collectively work toward creating a world with thriving families and communities.
These spaces are not meant to be used to learn from or recruit members of these communities, so please only register for groups that you authentically identify with. Facilitators of these spaces will encourage participants to use webcams as a way to ensure a safe space for authentic dialogue.
