Here’s how you can help:
~Submit (and solicit from women you know) stories of nursing in public incidents and of support or lack thereof to pump at work to firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to provide a significant amount of written testimony.
~Testify at the hearing (we may want to limit our oral testimony; please email me if you are interested in testifying).
~Come to the Capitol on the day and time of the committee hearings and register your support in person by “dropping a card.”
~Help compile a list of nursing in public incidents in Texas, including citing news coverage.
~Send photos of lactation spaces – especially ones that are less than ideal, such as a curtained-off area or a supply closet – but that are at *least* not next to a toilet to illustrate that solutions can be found, other than single-user restrooms, even when situations aren’t ideal. Any relevant input is welcome.
Committee Hearings Set – We are supporting 4 bills this session, and they’ve all been referred to committees. It looks like two of them will have a hearing in the Business and Industry Committee on the afternoon of Monday, March 6.
