FATshionraiser: FAT is a Feminist Issue on May 6th International NO DIET Day, 7-10pm
Come join us for an evening of soapbox style FAT conversations, clothing donations, swap, a fun community curvy catwalk (no experience necessary just fierceness required:), live entertainment, a film screening and more!
Why call it a FATshionraiser? Cause we’re ‘raising’ clothing donations baby! The 519 will be accepting donations of clothing at the event to help support Newcomers and Refugees who access The 519’s Newcomer Settlement Services many of whom are size 14+. Along with donating *gently* used clothing, you can also BRING clothing and accessories to participate in the Clothing Swap – hangers, tables and racks will be provided .
The Fatshionraiser is being held on May 6th International No Diet Day . There is a reason why the word die is in diet. Not only can dieting, especially yo-yo dieting , have serious life -threatening health consequences but it also kills your sprit over time. We promote a health at every size approach (HAES). Skinny is not synonymous with health any more than fat is with being unhealthy.
