"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
There are lots of ways that people can contribute to this campaign.
If you are an artist, filmmaker, photographer or creative spirit you can contribute some of your work to our campaign. We are always interested in seeing and sharing new and imaginative ways to challenge the limited representation of bodies in our current visual culture.
If you are a writer, blogger or social media activist you can help spread the word about our current campaign. If you're interested in blogging for EB NYC please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Inform yourself, share your opinion and direct people to our website for further information. You can also share your story on this website.
If you are a parent, teacher or youth-worker you can save the next generation from the misery of body hatred by encouraging the young people in your life to question the motives of the industries that promote insecurity and by sharing our website.
If you work in an industry that contributes to the growing problem of body anxiety you can play a key part in creating change. If you work in advertising, beauty or fashion take the opportunity to celebrate diversity of size, race, age and ability. If you work in weight loss, fitness, cosmetic surgery or pharmaceuticals you can promote health at every size. Remember, it is in your interest to develop and promote products and services that people want to spend their money on. As campaigns like Endangered Bodies receive growing support and recognition, we can expect the public will become less accepting of marketing campaigns that aim to profit by selling insecurity.
