A woman was harassed for nursing her two week old on a bus in Taylor, Michigan.  There's a nurse-in planned to support her. If you can't make that, please contact SMART bus and let them know that you support nursing mothers' rights.

 

Here's more information:

In response to the harassment Moon and her little ones endured, a nurse-in is planned for this coming Friday, July 1st, to take place at the Oakland County SMART Bus Terminal (details below and on the Facebook event page). Please support Moon, her newborn son, and nursing babies and mothers everywhere, by contacting SMART to let them know this is, without question, not the way to treat breastfeeding mothers and their babies. And thank you for nursing in public!

This is the contact us page for the bus. You can call or e-mail a complaint.

 

Here is the info on the bus route:

 

The drivers name is Darcell and Ms Moon was riding the 275 bus leaving the meijer in Taylor heading North towards Pontiac at 11:50 am, June 24th when she was asked to get off the bus because she was feeding her 2 week old baby.
