The National Weight Stigma Awareness Week

The National Weight Stigma Awareness Week is finally here! BEDA’s goal is to bring awareness to a common and entrenched social injustice that often results in serious physical and mental health consequences for those affected. Take part in the week by participating in activities suggested in our “Call to Action” and learning more about the effects of weight stigma.

Don’t forget to do your part by spreading the word through “cybershouts” using Twitter, Facebook, or other social media. Remember to use the hashtag #weightstigma and “cybershout” about the topic as much as possible during the week of September 24-28, 2012. Use our Weight Stigma Statistics and other information provided on this page for your “cybershouts.”
