This Virtual 5K is an opportunity for those passionate about birth and breastfeeding justice to join together across communities to move! Walk, run or race - this event can move at your pace.

Human-milk feeding is central to reclaiming traditional birth practices from the detrimental and ongoing impacts of colonialism and chattel  slavery on Indigenous and Black communities. We know that human milk makes a difference in the lives of families and benefits parents, children, communities, and society as a whole. 85 percent of Michigan families initiate breastfeeding. Unfortunately, our current systems, policies, and norms make it extremely difficult for families to achieve their breastfeeding goals. Supporting and promoting breast/chestfeeding is equity in action. MIBFN is committed to ensuring that justice and equity are at the center of everything we do: we are committed to centering the people who are marginalized by dominant culture. To that end, we are working to dismantle systems of oppression where they exist and replacing these systems with ones that result in equity in outcomes. We need YOU to join the MOVEment. Proceeds from this 5K will go towards MIBFN’s efforts for systemic breastfeeding change in Michigan. Please join together in moving for an equitable, just, and breastfeeding supportive culture!
