Liz Krueger and the New York City Breastfeeding Promotion Leadership Committee. The caravan celebrated the passage of Krueger’s Breastfeeding Bill of Rights, which is now awaiting the governor’s signature. The legislation codifies mothers’ right to breastfeed into a single, concise document, and bans commercial interests from influencing new mothers’ choice to breastfeed. Photo by Andrew Schwartz
