Contact your state legislators.
Let them know what's going on - that AISD needs to have a regulation or policy communicating to staff members that they must support breastfeeding moms. Tell them that sending a nursing mother to a private room stigmatizes public feeding and shames a mother.
Ask your legislator or his/her staff member to please contact the superintendent's office and school board members on your behalf and remind them of their obligation to uphold the law (Texas Health & Safety Code Sec. 165.002. RIGHT TO BREAST-FEED. A mother is entitled to breast-feed her baby in any location in which the mother is authorized to be.).
Feel free to share with them that we have a growing community of supporters among their constituents and in fact across the country. At this moment, there are over 1,100 "likes" at facebook.com/KeepAustinNIP and our petition, change.org/petitions/aisd-follow-the-law-and-respect-breastfeeding-mothers has more than 1,900 signatures.
If you are looking for more ways to help, email me at KeepAustinNIP@gmail.com.
Thank you all for your dedication to protecting mothers from discrimination.
Let us know in the comments or on Facebook if you
contacted your legislators and how they responded.
