Hey girl! Hope you’ve been great. I just wanted to check in with you to make sure you knew about a major body positivity/inclusivity conference that is coming up (because you know I am all about loving your body). It’s called the Fat Activism Conference. Haven’t heard of it? Well let me give you the lowdown real quick.
Founded by Ragen Chastain, the lady behind Dances with Fat and Jeanette DePatie of The Fat Chick in 2014, this conference is designed to address issues like size discrimination, plus size fashion (and men too!), fitness, the various forms of fat activism, the roles that race and sexuality play in the movement, and so much more! Open to people of all sizes, it seeks to tear down barriers so that we can have genuine conversations about how to put an end to the discrimination, shame, stigma, bullying, and oppression that is perpetuated on a daily basis as it pertains to our size and weight.
So on October 9-11, 2015, over 25 speakers from all backgrounds and walks of life, will bring you a diverse array of perspectives on legitimate issues within the plus size community and beyond! You must check out the schedule there are some really amazing keynotes and panels!
Here is a sampling of their speakers!!!
The cool part? You don’t have to worry about making any last-minute flight arrangements or booking a hotel because you can attend the conference right from the comfort of your own home. You read that right! It will be a completely virtual conference. All you have to do to participate is tune in on your computer or your phone.
The organizers want for everyone who is interested to be able to attend the conference, so they offer a few price options – including a pay-what-you-can-afford option for those who may not have much to spend OR want to pay more than the highest price option.
So, does this sound like something you are interested in attending?

Be sure to register soon for the early bird rate because it will increase on September 15th.
