We increase awareness about the issues that expecting and new parents face.
On Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and our blog, we post timely news related to pregnancy, parenting and accessibility (hooray for the Babies Act and BABES Act!) for our thousands of followers, and bring attention to other businesses and organizations doing great things in line with our mission; we’ve shouted out Mamava, Willow, Noobie, Kroger, NYC Parks, and even stadiums, airports, and subway lines!
UP-STAND and artist Rica Takashima have partnered to create UPSTANDxRICA, a public art campaign to promote awareness and dialogue about accessibility issues for pregnant women and parents.
TangySweet Photography purchased our 'Breastfeeding Welcome Here' signs to donate to Astoria businesses. Signs were donated and displayed based upon a neighborhood vote.
