A CALL TO DIVEST FROM DIET CULTURE & RECLAIM OUR BODIES
ONLINE EVENT > Thursday, January 12, 2023
4:00- 5:30 p.m. Pacific Time (7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time)
Join in with the authors of three paradigm shifting books in a conversation about what we can do to shift our focus and practices to divestment – from systems, industries, practices that uphold body hierarchies and make money off of body shame.
Sirius Bonner will facilitate a conversation between authors Dalia Kinsey, Kerri Kelly, Dana Sturtevant, and Hilary Kinavey about what is possible when together we vision a collective conversation about well-being that de-emphasizes individual boot-strapping and prioritizes systemic change and collective care.
For most of us, the call of the siren song of a New Year has become tired and redundant. New Year resolutions that are about changing or improving your body are still the most common resolutions DESPITE widespread understanding that they are not useful or long-lasting. Why do we do this? Probably because it’s what we feel we should do – to become healthier and good. What is minimally or only subliminally acknowledged is that most of the ways we go about this feel inauthentic and out of alignment with our actual hopes for ourselves and each other. The oppressive diet, weight loss, wellness and fitness industries we invest in keep everyone tied to a false change process that results in more harm and discrimination than it improves well-being. One way we dismantle systems of harm is to divest personally from them. We have the power to collapse systems if we include ourselves in the process.
