Black Breastfeeding Week 2022 (#BBW22):

For the 10th year of Black Breastfeeding Week, we’re celebrating the countless breastfeeding journeys for families- past, present & future. The new foundation of lactation support is built on racial equity, cultural empowerment, and community engagement. Powered by our collective resilience.

Event Leads:

Creating Breastfeeding Friendly Communities: CBFC is an initiative of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s Center of Health Equity, designed to build/expand community-based breastfeeding partnerships and advance broad-based policy, system, and environmental changes on breastfeeding protection, promotion, support, and care management within community settings and businesses and with child care and health care providers. The initiative also seeks to reduce the racial/ethnic and community disparities in the prevalence of breastfeeding, especially exclusive breastfeeding in Neighborhood Health Action Center areas of North and Central Brooklyn, East Harlem and the South Bronx.
