Top #5Actions of the Past Week: Friday, June 10, 2022
Each week, we provide you with a number of urgent, high impact actions that you might have missed. We appreciate you taking the time to take action, to share on social media, and to help us spread the word. All of our actions together add up to create change.
This week, we have a couple of urgent actions for you to take (see below) – and we also have two amazing videos for you to watch:
- The first video is an animation that highlights the damaging impact of police in schools. After you watch the video, you can also take action too (Please do!).
- The second video is a virtual roundtable with Health & Human Service’s Assistant Secretary of Health Admiral Rachel Levine on the infant formula crisis.
Thank you for all you continue to do! We hope you’re having a great start to your summer.

Tell Congress to take action NOW on the infant formula shortage!
It is now being reported that in most states there is a 74% shortage of infant formula, with some states experiencing a shocking 90% out-of-stock rate for common formulas. This is a crisis and we need Congress to take immediate action to ensure parents can provide their babies with the nutrition they need now and that this type of emergency doesn’t occur ever again.
Sign our letter to Congress calling on them to take immediate action to address the infant formula shortage and prevent future shortages from happening!

Check out our virtual roundtable with U.S. Health and Human Services on the infant formula crisis
The baby formula crisis is a national emergency - and we’re here to help! MomsRising and Little Lobbyists held a virtual roundtable earlier this week with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services’s Assistant Secretary of Health Admiral Rachel Levine. During this informative conversation, we shared stories from moms struggling to find and afford formula, dispelled myths and misinformation, and offered guidance on how to safely feed your baby during this crisis.
