You may remember Maria Kang from her fifteen minutes of “What’s Your Excuse” fame.

Did you miss the
Fat Activism Conference?
It’s not too late!
You can still register to get access to all the recordings, transcripts, speaker handouts, and the conference goody bag! Get recordings of all 30 speakers talking about everything from “Re-Imagining Fashion from an Inclusive Framework” to “Activism for the Introverted and Anxious” to “Building Fat Patient Power While Accessing Healthcare” and more. The pay what you can option is still available so that money is not a barrier.
Registration closes October 9th (though of course you’ll have time after that to listen and download.)
