NAAFA, the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance, is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending size discrimination in all its forms. Founded in 1969, their goal is to help build a society in which people of every size are accepted with dignity and equality in all aspects of life. A few ways they do this is through education, advocacy, and this convention.

Diversity, Size Acceptance and Corporate Culture

Speaking of which, I’ll be delivering the saturday afternoon keynote about finding your own style. In addition, there will be workshops focused on plus size fashion blogging and teaching fat fashion.
