"[Black Breastfeeding Week] elevates the voices of black families....and uplifts the moms that are saying 'I want to be able to change the narrative for my children, and my children's children.'
The root of why there's a disparity in the first place is the inequity - the lack of compassionate care, the lack of cultural humility. Black Breastfeeding Week not only uplifts the families, but it also brings to light the root cause - that we need to fix this inequity."
