What would you say on TV if you could?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I was attending a public art function at a Community Center with my family. I sat down to nurse my twins. A parent from my daughters school came up to me to introduce herself and see my children, as she is also a mother to twins. She commented how she didn't even know I was nursing and we continued talking. A minute later an employee from the Community Center approached us and said, "If you are going to do that you will have to cover up". I asked her what I should be covering and she pointed to one of my children's heads and repeated herself. I told her I was breaking no law and continued nursing. She then repeated herself a third time and before she walked away the woman who had been talking to me spoke up and said to the employee that if I was showing more skin I would still be within the law. 

 

I have been approached by a local news station about the incident and could possibly be interviewed after the I get a response to my letter to the Community Center Administration and Board of Directors.

 

I am by no means a public speaker but want to be prepared with strong points that are fact based, and poignant. I want to represent breastfeeding moms proudly if the interview comes to pass. 

 

What would you say if you were me in front of a television camera?

No idea but good for you for standing up for yourself and your kids and shame on that employee.

Everyone know the benefits of bfing...well, in theory anyway.  Talk about the laws that protect it.  Best wishes!
