Fat Liberation + Body Reclamation
March 30, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDT
White supremacy continues to invade every facet of our culture, including the way we view health, wellness, and our bodies. Join us as we learn to apply a social justice lens to health and wellness through body liberation: a movement towards freedom from systems of oppression that designate certain bodies as more worthy, healthy, and desirable than others.
In this panel discussion, we’ll explore the racist roots of diet culture, and understand how to be anti-racist in the ways we communicate about bodies and wellness on our social media channels and beyond.
Are your food and wellness choices rooted in fatphobia and racism? Do you consider how your practices could be perpetuating these harmful constructs and creating an unsafe space? Come join us on March 30th to learn and grow how we can ensure our content and brands do not perpetuate fatphobia and reclaim our beautifully human bodies!
Moderating this much needed discussion is Ragen Chastain IG: ragenchastain and our lovely panelists, Shelby Gordan IG: fit.flexible.fluid/ and Da’Shaun Harrison IG: dashaunlh and Mayra Mejia @MayraYMejia
