Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony to Mark Opening of Lactation Room at Dade County Courthouse

Miami-Dade County, the Miami-Dade Chapter of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers, and the Eleventh Judicial Circuit will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony this Thursday, September 8th, to mark the opening of a lactation room at the historic Dade County Courthouse.
 
This project, a joint effort by the County, Miami-Dade FAWL, and the Eleventh Circuit, will be the first lactation room in the Miami-Dade Courts, to be followed in the very near future by the opening of lactation rooms at our other court facilities.
 
“We are very proud to offer this safe, comfortable space for nursing mothers. This room will be especially useful for attorneys and other court participants who often spend many hours here and could really use a quiet space for lactation,” said the Honorable Bertila Soto, Chief Judge of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit.
 
The Honorable Scott Bernstein, Administrative Judge of the Family Division, added: “We should encourage all lawyers to excel in their careers without having to compromise their families. This lactation room will allow all court users to maintain that balance.”
 
 
Attn. Members of the Media: The ribbon cutting ceremony is open to the public, and photo opportunities and interviews can be arranged upon request.
