Fat Activism Conference: Tools for the Revolution

KEYNOTE Visibility: From Vulnerability to Value and Validity – Irene McCalphin  

Irene McCalphinSociety has enforced silence and shame on fat bodies and the people who reside in them.  In a culture that glorifies thinner bodies as a sign of health, intelligence and worth one of the most radical forms of activism is simply being seen.  Join Irene McCalphin for conversation regarding the journey to visibility through the inevitable challenge of vulnerability to reclamation of value and empowerment of self and community validation.

KEYNOTE PANEL A Sovereign Embodiment – Crossing the Finish Line Together – Irene McCalphin, Juan@ Tango, Jessica Wilson

sovereign embodiment panelSurviving ruling class supremacy is hard. Some of us don’t make it. The eradication of fat marginalization and size based oppression requires an intersectional approach to dismantling the white supremacist system. Sizeism will not be eradicated as long as some of us are still on the other side of the divide. Bringing our personal intersectional experiences to the discourse, we will strategize on how to cross the finish line together by addressing the impact of being subjected to multiple marginalizations and taking responsibility for pushing bacragenk against privileges.  This panel is crafted by Juana Tango, Irene McCalphin, and Jessica Wilson. Our collective identities include POC; immigrant; Queer;  genderfluid; fat; aneurotypical, mental health and physical disabilities; and poor or working class.  They also include American / United Statesan, college educated, cisgender, middle class, biracial and bicultural. Join us so that together we all will not just survive, but thrive.
