Cross-Country Nurse-In of VS JULY 1ST 1pm!! Update #166 - Page 3

post #41 of 352
I'm in - if you need any help, LMK. I'll notify the NYCNurse-In group and see how many women are willing to show up.

Can someone get a list together of all the recent incidents that have happened to spur this on? I haven't been following recently (too much travel and really bad morning sickness), but think that we would need to put that in our press releases.

Also, we could get together a blanket press release as a guide for mommas to use so that we're sort of all on the same page, KWIM?

This thread is giving me deja vu! I feel like we already went though all this with VS. The above post in particular gave me such a strong sense of deja vu. It seems like I read a post just like it... pertaining to VS... months ago!

I wish I could help! DD can't nurse, so I'm an EPer. It's a shame, though, this is SUCH an important issue! More power to ya, ladies!

That sounds like a GREAT idea! If we had names, locations & dates of the incidents (3 that I've read about) it would be great to send to local news stations & newspapers. I'd do this area of Michigan, or perhaps congregate nearer to Lansing...

...off to FYT to see where mamas might be

The listings are taking a looooong time because they'll only do it one city at a time

I was thinking blanket statements would be a good idea also. Any good PR people out there with ideas?

Ok...girls who were at the rally in Boston...who was the doctor who helped set that rally up? Do you think she would be interested in helping us along with this?

If someone in each state can call all the LLL leaders that live near a VS and tell them what we're doing, then the word will spread.

I am new, and came across this. I cannot believe that VS would say that nursing a baby in their stores are considered unsanitary! Look at the pictures around the store. A nursing mother shows less boob, than a woman in the posters they use to advertise their bras. This is one chick that will never shop there again, and believe me they will loose alot of money!

So far there's at least 3 moms for Medford, OR (Southern OR) VS. I'm gathering more.
