I know a few of us expressed interest in this on the Lactivism board... anyone feel up to it? I'm not the most social person, but I'd come out for a good cause.<br><br>
***Guys, I just got an email from a woman at New York Magazine; she's doing an article on lactivism in the city and will be there on saturday. So if you were waffling on whether or not to come, I think it's definitely important to make a good showing!<br><br>
Just so all the info is in the first post:<br><br>
We're meeting at noon at the Applebee's 50th street location.<br><br>
This is a nurse-out, rather than a nurse-in, because none of us want to eat at Applebee's and for visibility.<br><br>
Does anyone have any ideas or sources for handouts/flyers/signage/Tshirts?

I am so not an organizer... that said, there's a Times Square Applebee's, and we could do it the same day that the other Applebee's nurse-outs are happening. Is that the 8th?

I came here just to see if anyone would be organizing something in NYC. There wasn't anything listed for NYC on the Yahoo group. I'm terrible at organizing, but I'll definitely come out, with my great big, 2yo nursling, if other people will be there.

You know, there's a babywearing meeting on the 8th... I wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea to do this before or after the meeting. That way, a lot of people who might want to come will be out anyway, you know?

yes, before the meeting, i am guessing. the meeting is from 3 to 5, and if we want to be on the news, starting after 5 will be too late. i am so there, although i am just learning to nurse my LO. i vote for the times square location.

I'll be there. I just need the exact info (date, time, address!).

I would definitely go! Not to make things complicated but I wonder whether the Times Square location (inside the movie theatre) is the best one? That area is always packed! Of course that's good and bad. I assume this would be outside the restaurant on the sidewalk. Inside the movie theatre/ Applebees building would be private property, so unless we were going to eat there (I agree, yuk) or buy movie tickets, they could make us leave. What about the one on 50th and Broadway? Would that be better? Just wondering. Have any of you bf'ed at either location? Any issues?

I read about this on another forum. I was outraged (as i usually am about these things) when i heard that they are willing to go as far as supplying blankets in a state that has laws in place for beastfeeding moms. I plan on BF my kids (when and if they decide to show up -_-*) and I would not want to cover up at all especially with a blanket that I don't even know if it is cleean or anything and NEVER if the law says I don't have to.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/censored.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="censored">:

Applebee's on 50th sounds good. I just joined the Yahoo list, so I'll make a post there, and maybe one on the NY-API mailing list as well.

OK, I listed our event on the Yahoo site. The 50th street location, 12-1 pm on saturday, september 8th. I really hope I'm not the only one there!<br><br>
Anyone with any more ideas as to how to get the word out?
