Letter to the Fed is Best Foundation

2017-08-15-Joint-Letter-to-FIB-Fndtn

Dear Colleagues:

On August 15, 2017, we joined over 40 organizations in requesting a meeting with the co-founders of Fed is Best Foundation.  Fed is Best has engaged in a very public campaign that draws links between the practice of exclusive breastfeeding, as well as its education and promotion by health care providers, and the tragic deaths and injuries of babies.

 

While we disagree on the root cause of these tragedies, we believe it is in everyone’s best interest to engage in honest and constructive dialogue.  As such, the co-founders of Fed is Best were invited to discuss their positions with us and try to find common ground.

 

I am sharing this information with you to keep you up to date on the approach that we are taking to foster dialogue with a group you may have come across.

 

You can read the letter and see the list of organizations signed on at the ABC website, beginning on August 24, 2017,  Please feel free to ask any questions or make comments.  Glenda Dickerson has agreed to represent ABC with this committee, if needed.

 

Gayle Whatley

Vice Chair
