ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Babies were born to be breastfed
The DC Breastfeeding Coalition is a 501(C)(3) organization that was established in 2004 to increase the breastfeeding rates of all infants living in the District of Columbia.
Working in partnership with maternal and child health professionals, community health organizations, and mother-to-mother support groups, the DC Breastfeeding Coalition seeks to promote, protect and support culturally-sensitive programs and activities that build awareness and understanding of the preventive health benefits of breastfeeding. Through its breastfeeding research, advocacy and educational activities, the Coalition seeks to reduce health disparities - particularly among racialized families living in DC communities with less resources.
