Applebee's Nurse-In!

Learn more about the upcoming Applebee's nurse-in here!

Follow the link above to find your local Applebee's nurse-in location.  The Nationwide Applebee’s Nurse-in starts at 1:00pm your local time on 9/29/2012 and lasts until 3:00 pm. 

"What is the cause of this nurse-in? Dawn Holland was sitting in a booth in the back of a nearly empty Applebee’s in Covington, Georgia last week around 2 o’clock in the middle of the afternoon when she had the cops called on her for merely breastfeeding her child, despite being within her legal rights to do so. Why were the cops called? Because the manager wanted her to get up and move herself and her child to their unsanitary bathroom to breastfeed or leave. Dawn refused to be shamed and breastfeed her child where people defecate.

In an act of solidarity with Dawn, supporters are hoping to help spread awareness of the importance of breastfeeding and our basic human right choose when and where we nourish our children. In no situation where a mother is merely peacefully nourishing her child in public, whether it be from breast or bottle, should the police be called on her."
