Who We Are

A conversation in 1986 started this organization. Marian Tompson, co-Founder of LLLI chatted with Ellen Goodrich (King), former Texas Coordinator of Leaders, about a way to stay in contact with friends and supporters of La Leche League with whom we have shared significant parts of our lives. Soon the LLLI Board of Directors directed that an Alumnae Association be established. Now, 35 years and hundreds of thousands of breastfed babies later, Friends of La Leche League continues to connect us together.
