Take a Stand

24 million Americans are affected by eating disorders.

Over one-half of teenage girls and nearly one-third of teenage boys use unhealthy weight control behaviors.

90% of Proud2Bme members say they have bullied because of their physical appearance.

We can use our voices to spark a revolution. We can build a nation where confidence rules. Now let's get to it!
