I am pleased to be added to the line up of speakers for this years Fat Activism Conference. This is a virtual conference (so you can listen to the talks by phone and/or computer) for people of all sizes who are interested in creating a world that respects the diversity of body sizes, and who are interested in fighting the bullying, stigmatizing, shaming, and oppression faced by fat people, and want to do that work intersectionally.
Whether you are looking for help in your personal life with family, friends, healthcare providers etc. or you’re interested in being more public with your activism with blogging, petitions, protest, projects, online activism, or something else, this conference will give you tools and perspectives to support you and your work, and to help you make that work intentionally intersectional and inclusive so that nobody gets left behind.
The conference will be virtual – you’ll be able to access the workshops on the phone or on the computer from the comfort of your own home or anywhere that you are. If you can’t make the live event, register anyway and you can access the talks via downloadable recordings and, with a Platinum Pass, a thumbdrive with all the talks will be mailed to you. Depending on presenter preference you may be able to submit questions ahead of time and/or engage in live Q&A.
