On September 15, 2012, breastfeeding mother Dawn Holland was accosted by the manager of Applebee's in Covington Georgia. She was asked to either nurse her son in their bathroom or leave. When she stated her rights to breastfeed and did not move, the police were called.
Let's make a stand!
On Saturday September 29th at 1:00pm we are requesting a nationwide nurse in at local Applebee's restaurants. This is to promote our rights to choose how we feed our babies and an effort to educate business and the public about breast feeding. Even if you are not a nursing mother please go to an Applebee's and let them know you are there for a Mother's Right to Choose and let their staff know you support mothers and their choice on how and when to feed their children. Please join us and spread the word to your mother groups, friends, family and local communities. Also, be sure to post this message to your facebook page, blogs you may follow or any form of social media.
Together we can make a change.
If you would like to host your own local event, please create a Facebook Event titled Nationwide Applebee's Nurse-In 2012 - (_Your city name_) and post it on our wall. Thanks!
