BACE is pleased to present the Edmonton Gala Premiere of the new hot film Milk, by Noemi Weis, on Wednesday, September 30, 2015

Milk was well received at the HotDocs Film in Toronto earlier this year has received Best Director and Best Editing nomination at the Madrid International Film Festival. Watch the trailer!

This film premiere and gala are a fundraiser for the Breastfeeding Friendly Edmonton project. 

This is a key fundraiser for BACE - we will be using the money raised to fund a public education campaign. Last fall we received a Human Rights Education grant to expand our Breastfeeding Friendly project. So far we've been working with stakeholders ranging from the Edmonton Public Library and the Elizabeth Fry Society to the Lucina Centre, the Fun Dome, and others who recognize the need to provide safe and welcoming spaces for breastfeeding families. 

There have been over a dozen incidents of breastfeeding harassment in Edmonton in the last few years including at Edmonton-area hospitals, swimming pools, and even the public library.

BACE has called on Edmonton to do more to support breastfeeding after a University of Alberta study found that while over 90 per cent of Alberta women start out breastfeeding, many do not meet their own breastfeeding goals. Researchers identified a lack of support for breastfeeding in public as one factor in early weaning. In Toronto public health researchers found women who are comfortable breastfeeding in public or in front of their friends are almost 3 times more likely to still be breastfeeding at six months.

The next step in our project is a public awareness campaign on the right to breastfeed in public. The more we raise, the bigger our campaign can be!
