Just got back from the council meeting (I left right before the vote - dang it!) but I just heard on the news that the measure that would allow a mom to nurse anywhere that the mother and child otheriwse have the right to be has passed! Yippee <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana">!!<br><br>
I'm sure someone else will provide a better picture of what happened - but I just wanted to get this on here!!

I'm headed off to bed, but just wanted to say what an amazing experience this was. Everyone who spoke in support gave me chills!! Seriously I feel honored to be part of a circle of these women, some of whom I don't even know or only know through the internet.<br><br>
Now onto Tucson, Tempe and the state we go!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

i was thankful to be there for the vote and some of the speakers (why have a city council meeting in a LIBRARY where kids are not very welcome <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">)<br><br>
I am very thankful for the hardwork, ladies, and very grateful for safer spaces to nurse our children.<br><br>

We ended up leaving early because my little guy got cranky. We got home and tuned in to see it on TV! I wish that I could have stayed as I had a few comments that I might have got up to say in response to one speaker but I am glad that I got to see it on TV. I also love that the vote was unanimous!<br><br>
I also ran into one of the news stations and they asked me if I was for or against NIP and I told her FOR and they then tried to ask another who was also for....it seems they were having a hard time finding mamas against NIPing!<br><br>
The new Ordinance takes effect Dec. 10!

I'm pretty new here but think I know some of the people involved with this situation IRL... is there a link to an article or information about this case?<br><br>
Thanks!

I have been watching the reruns of the city council meeting and I am so proud!!! Yeah!! I think it was so cute how some of you brought toddlers up to the mic and you were trying to keep their busy hands away from it and talk. lol!
