BBW 2022: 10 Years, A New Foundation

It is the 10th year of Black Breastfeeding Week and we’re just getting started. For #BBW22, we’re celebrating the countless stories and families- past, present & future. We’ve shifted the narrative/optics, supported and uplifted each other…and it’s still just the beginning. The new foundation of lactation support is built on racial equity, cultural empowerment, and community engagement and is powered by our collective resilience. #BBW10Years #blackbreastfeedingweek Please share and help spread the word. We look forward to celebrating with you!

You can power our work by sharing events and sponsoring the week. BBW21 Sponsorship Packet
