Weight Stigma Awareness Week

This week, September 23-27, is Weight Stigma Awareness Week! BEDA (the Binge Eating Disorder Association) hopes to use this week to increase awareness about the destructive nature of weight stigma & how to fight it. Weight stigma is judgment based on a person's weight or size, and often is a factor in bullying, hate-speech, and various exclusions. Have you ever experienced weight stigma? What do you think can be done to combat it? http://bedaonline.com/weight-stigma-awareness-week-schedule/#.Uj8FuyiCLs_
