Well, I just had to support this petition against size discrimination in America.
As a plus size retailer, I have heard stories that have brought me to tears.
We have a chance to change how we are treated through laws which protect people of size–that is, the majority of people in the U.S. Size is the only accepted form of discrimination in our society. And now, there is a petition in place to let lawmakers know how we feel. Cool.
Yes, that’s right! Finally, a Federally mandated law which protects people of size against discrimination and it is long overdue.
So, How about you? Are you ready to add your name to the list that is currently running over 500+ strong? We need to do all we can so that legislators take notice and listen to our voices.
The petition was initiated by Lisa Marie Garbo, an entrepreneur, and owner of her own nightclub, and a plus size woman herself, she decided it was time to take a stand against size discrimination. As Lisa Marie states, “All overweight people should be shown the exact same rights as their size-accepted counterparts. Discrimination, isolation and humiliation are words we all know well. It is our goal that each one of us in the plus-size community replace those words with acceptance, celebration and dignity.” Thanks to Lisa Marie for being a visionary and engaging all of us as we change the future!
Take note: The goal is to have 10,00 signatures as soon as we can!
So, here is your call to action. Go ahead and read the entire petition and let your voice be heard. This is your call to action. Act now!
More as it happens. Jodell
