From @longbeachbreastfeeds - Earlier today Long Beach Breastfeeds shared this post and wrote, "Thank you to Long Beach Public Library <3 what a great event for the community to enjoy.
Childhood rooted in love." The #LBPL deleted their post after hundreds of hateful comments and threats made to the hundreds of supportive commenters. As community members and partners, we simply want to reiterate our gratitude, our support, and our commitment to the LBPL and the ENTIRE community.
Like the libraries, like The LGBTQ Center of Long Beach, like Vice Mayor Rex Richardson, and like the beautiful Long Beach City we love, LBB will always strive for equity in all we do. When it comes to parenting, there is no place for hate or judgement. We offer safe places for breastfeeders, chestfeeders, queer families, and women of color.
