Registration for this event is no longer open.

Program Description


What is anti-fatness and how does it show up in different spheres of life? How can we combat it, and be a good ally to fat folks? Where is diet culture hiding, and how do we recognize it? Learn about the history of fat acceptance and how to support the fat liberation movement in this conversation with Emma Simpson-Tucker. We will focus on fat liberation as opposed to body positivity, and fat accessibility as opposed to individual body image.

Feel free to bring questions and experiences to this program, as there will be space for some discussion!

Registration is required. All registrants will receive a Zoom link.

She is an anti-diet fat liberationist and is so excited to bring this conversation to the Portsmouth Public Library!
