Cook County properly fund breastfeeding services for all WIC participants

This is extremely important because breastfeeding is not just a lifestyle choice but a public health issue especially in urban neighborhoods. Black and Latino neighborhoods have been overlooked and have been denied proper education and support resources. The answer WIC has offered has been formula which even the AAP and Surgeon General says should not be the immediate answer to proper infant nutrition.
