Reaching Our Sisters Everywhere (ROSE) Inc. was founded to address breastfeeding disparities in communities of color. ROSE works to normalize breastfeeding by providing resources and networking opportunities for individuals and communities. As a national expert, and in partnership with communities, we build equity in maternal and child health through culturally competent training, education, advocacy, and support.
SOUL FOOD FOR YOUR BABY
In response to perpetuating low breastfeeding rates and health disparities, Soul Food for Your Baby was created in 2006 to address breastfeeding concerns that impact African American families.
What distinguishes SFYB from other programs is that it:
Emphasizes a cultural connection to breastfeeding and links nursing to the experience, history and legacy of members of the African American Diaspora
Targets African American families
Delivers a critical message to the people who need it
Encourages community support & collaboration
