Plus friendly events is a very important part of the the size acceptance mission. Where else can you go to receive encouragement, discuss issues that matter to you and support like minded people.
Next year, you’ll have another plus friendly event to add to your event calendar.
Body Love: A Women’s Conference, takes place in April 2014 in Tucson, AZ. Brought to you by Jes Baker, The Militant Baker, this conferences promises to be a high energy, positive and progressive event where women can come together to build a community in a supportive environment while participating in revolutionary presentations and workshops.
Subjects covered in the conference will include: the history of the beauty myth, the concept of aging, post-birth bodies, how to alter clothing, body positive movement (yoga, burlesque, belly dancing etc.), self expression through writing, how to counteract self hate, and why it’s crucial to challenge social norms.
If Jes looks familiar it’s because she is. You may remember her as the advocate behind the “Attractive and Fat” campaign but instead of stopping there, Jes is taking her message of “Change your world, not your body,” to the next level.
To help cover facility fees, catering costs, technology rental, travel necessities for keynote speaker and more, Jes has started a campaign on Indiegogo. Regardless of how much you give, there’s something in it for you and every amount helps out.
