FEDERAL COURT RULES IN FAVOR OF STUDENTS IN I LOVE BOOBIES! BRACELET SCHOOL BAN
When Keep A Breast first created the “i love boobies!” bracelet we had no idea the controversy that it would stir up. When the first banning happened in schools we were left wondering: Why were many not focused on the fact that young people were finally talking about breast cancer and breast health?
Many of you stood up and became outspoken advocates for our cause. We applauded as you held school events to raise awareness and funds for KAB, and retweeted photos of loved ones battling breast cancer, our bracelets visible. Your emails and social media posts about why you wore your bracelets made us cry many times. You believed in us – and our messaging – and we can’t begin to express our appreciation.
