In regards to us being harassed by a Krogers manager, in Dayton/Kettering OH, for breastfeeding while shopping for grocerys. She is low income of course, and she doesn't really know where to start to find one, any suggestions?
ETA: Also does anyone have any advice or suggestions on if we should hold a nurse in and if so how about should we do it?
I'm so sorry that happened to you and your friend!
Usually with harassment, I see experienced Moms here recommend starting with the company before going for a nurse-in. That allows the company to apologize and train its staff (which is really what we want!) without the embarrassment of a nurse-in. If they don't apologize, well, then it's time to stage a nurse-in!
Have you reported the manager to head office? If so, what did they say?
The law is on your side "Ohio Rev. Code Ann. § 3781.55 (2005) provides that a mother is entitled to breastfeed her baby in any location of a place of public accommodation wherein the mother is otherwise permitted. (SB 41)" (from http://www.ncsl.org/?tabid=14389)
Also, if she needs ideas for letters, or wants a letter proof-read before sending it, there are a lot of experienced moms here who I'm sure would want to help.
To enforce the Ohio Law you have to go through the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, and not able to sue directly, since it is tied to Ohio's Civil Rights statutes.
Also, the company has said they were sorry and will also be training/re-training the staff.
