Our Mission Statement:
We challenge those aspects of culture and industries that turn individuals against their own bodies. We offer alternative ways to live with and enjoy being in our bodies, now and for future generations.
All Endangered Bodies teams adhere to the following guidelines:
- Commitment to challenge all the merchants of body hatred, including the diet, food, beauty, fitness, fashion, pharmaceutical, advertising and entertainment industries that actively profit from promoting body anxiety.
- Commitment to diversity, both in practice and in the composition of the group, which should be reflected in all images, policies and intentions.
- Commitment to respect the individual identity of all persons as it intersects with size, age, race, culture, gender, sexual identity, sexual orientation, class and ability.
- Commitment to promoting body positive images and messaging.
- Commitment to running ongoing and active campaigns responsive to the needs of local, national or the global community.
- Commitment to attend EB International meetings once a month online and to liaise with EB on work undertaken in the name of Endangered Bodies.
- Commitment to not criticize individual decisions but aim to raise critical questions around the degree of choice, ownership and participation that individuals have in relation to their bodies in diverse situations.
