DC Breastfeeding Coalition Committees

Welcome to the DCBFC! As a new member, we strongly encourage you to participate in one of our standing committees or work groups. Committee involvement is mandatory with the Gold Level Membership. Not only is committee membership a great way to network with other members, but it also allows you to have a direct impact in reaching DCBFC objectives!
