About the workshop:
Please join us in (virtually) welcoming Sonalee to the University of Delaware in the first-ever collaboration between APSA and the Lavender Programming Board at UD. This interactive workshop is free and open to the public. All are free to drop in and out as needed. *Please be mindful when entering into this discussion as we will be talking about the sensitive issues of COVID-19, body image, and weight.*
We will be discussing politicizing your body image, unlearning diet culture and food morality, body acceptance in a world of capitalism and colonization, and more, in the context of COVID-19!
