There’s a new nonprofit on the scene with the goal of promoting equal and fair treatment of people of all sizes. Washington D.C. based PlusInc, has a pretty specific goal:
…to Promote the Equal and Fair Treatment of People of All Sizes; National nonprofit size acceptance organization strives to better engage advocates, businesses, educational institutions and strategic partners to foster a size-friendly society without discrimination or stigma
They plan to reach that goal by spearheading a number of initiatives, such as offering “Accessibility Resources, Size-Friendly Social Network, Size-Friendly National Business Directory, Size-Friendly Health & Wellness Directory, Size-Friendly Conflict Resolution Trainings & Workshops, and a “Words Matter” Educational Campaign.”
Full Disclosure: I am a PlusInc board member. We don’t often directly discuss the issues or politics of being plus size here, but with such a lack of representation out there for people of size, I think it’s important to have something like this available to people who need it.
