  • a grandparent
  • an advocate for breastfeeding!

Friends of La Leche League Mission

The mission of the Friends of La Leche League is to support La Leche League as a resource and inspiration for future generations, encourage lifelong connections with the LLL community, and share the insights and wisdom that began with the breastfeeding relationship.

Join us for the first Friends of LLL Members' Happy Hour!

Responding to requests from members, Friends of LLL will host a virtual Happy Hour on Thursday, February 18th at 8:00 pm EST (7:00 pm CST, 6:00 pm MST, 5:00 pm PST). Join us with your beverage and snack of choice to catch up with old friends, meet new ones, and have some socially distanced fun!

This virtual Happy Hour is one of the benefits of Friends of LLL membership. If you need to join or renew, you can do so HERE. Space for the virtual Happy Hour is limited, so please send your name and email address as soon as you can to Friends of LLL President, Gail Moak. We will send you the member password to register via Eventbrite. See you there!

More Mini-Grants!

In a departure from the past, Friend of La Leche League is excited to award Mini-Grants in two consecutive years. We are receiving reports on the progress of the 2020 Mini-Grant award projects, and will be sharing more information on our Mini-Grants page and via Continuum. We are now assembling the 2021 Mini-Grant Team and will be opening the application process soon! If you have an interest in serving on the Mini-Grants team working with applicants and making grant selections, please volunteer here.
We are so pleased to be able to fund so many innovative projects around the globe that further our mission.

New Website

We have received so much positive feedback about the new Friends of La Leche League website! With a simpler design, better graphics, more photos, and integration with our social media feeds, our new website is making it much easier for Friends to connect. And the technology platform has proven to be much easier for us to maintain and update. Please continue to share your thoughts about the new website by contacting us at info@friendsoflll.org.
