Description

RECLAIMING HEALTH FOR EVERY BODY: A Body Positive Conversation presented by EVERYBODY

Join this dynamic panel discussion that will explore what a healthy body is from body positive perspectives. We will address myths of “health” that falsely correlate to size, gender, class, race and ability and explore the unique needs of bodies that do not conform to able-bodied, cisgendered, thin, class-privileged and/or white identity. Meditation/Movement led by Edyn Bryant. Co-sponsored by Superfit Hero and The Plus Bus.

Reception following discussion with light refreshments, clothing discounts and shopping with our co-sponsors.

This is a Wheelchair accessible event.
