The CDC Division of Nutrition and Physical Activity and the United States Breastfeeding Committee co-host this series of Bi-Monthly State Breastfeeding Coalitions Webinars, held every two months (in even numbered months) on the second Tuesday of the month from 2-3 p.m. ET. They bring together state/territorial/tribal breastfeeding coalitions to share best practices and news and to network and collaborate on issues of national significance.

Access Info

Access to these webinars is open to all interested breastfeeding coalition members. Topic/speaker details are posted 1-2 weeks before each session on this page and in the Coalitions Learning Connection. The recordings and presentation materials from all past sessions are archived below.

Exposed: Discrimination Against Breastfeeding Workers

Presented by: 

Liz Morris,  Deputy Director, Center for Work Life Law and 

Jessica Lee, Staff Attorney, Center for Work Life Law

Discrimination against breastfeeding workers has devastating health and economic consequences and represents a major barrier to breastfeeding in the United States. Based on new findings from a groundbreaking study from the Center for WorkLife Law, this webinar will explore the challenges breastfeeding workers face, including lack of accommodations, sexual harassment, job loss, and early weaning. Expert panelists will present the current state of workplace breastfeeding laws and highlight where legal protections fall short. They will share public policy solutions that can be implemented not only at the federal level, but also by states and local governments, to ensure breastfeeding workers have the basic protections they need to continue breastfeeding after returning to work. Webinar participants will also learn about existing resources to help breastfeeding workers who need workplace accommodations today.
