TRUMBULL - A group of mothers organized a very unique protest at the Westfield Trumbull Mall this afternoon.

The group of about 10 women held a public breastfeeding rally, called a "Nurse In," to promote the Connecticut law that all women have the right to nurse their babies in public without having to cover up.

The event was organized by a Shelton mother who says her friend was asked to cover up by a security guard while feeding her son in the mall earlier this month.
