NATIONAL ASSOCIATION TO ADVANCE FAT ACCEPTANCE INC
September 22, 2012

I just celebrated my 6th year as a NAAFA board member and I am truly honored to be a part of an organization that is making a positive impact in people's lives. I have met members from all over the world that are supporting our efforts. I have been honored to see how the organization has evolved with revamping its focus on civil rights, advocacy and education by developing the Size Diversity and Child Advocacy toolkits, producing guidelines for therapists, health care providers, fitness professional and other resources, like the travel tips guide to improve the lives of people of size. We streamlined and enhanced our annual national convention with sessions on advocacy training and in 2010 instituted our First international Health At Every Size (HAES) Biannual Summit. In addition we've put in a scholarship program for Fashion Design Students and for undergraduate and graduate students conducting HAES research. We're forming strategic alliances, created a chapter toolkit, launched a End Bullying Now campaign. What can people expect moving forward? Enhanced website and communication tools, continued focus on building strategic partnerships and our on-going commitment to diversity and inclusion, more guidelines and toolkits, more NAAFA chapters and a lot more. However, we can't do this work alone, we need YOU!
