Summary: Geller Law Group featured in Washington Post for leadership on passage of breastfeeding bill in VA

Albo, along with co-sponsor Del. Jennifer McClellan (D-Richmond), introduced the bill this month that would “provide that a mother may breast-feed in any place where the mother is lawfully present.”

His support was thanks to the urging of lawyer Rebecca Geller, a mother of three who runs a law firm and is an activist who was horrified by all the cases she saw on her mommy e-mail lists about breast-feeding evictions.

“It makes me crazy that 47 states have this law, but, of course, Virginia does not,” she told me when we were messaging one day.

“I’m not even an extended breastfeeding mom (cannot wait until the baby turns 1, and I can say goodbye to my breast pump!!!), but I still want to have it a protected right!”
