Who are we?
Get to know us and join us!
We are a new organization to the Lesley University community dedicated to raising awareness and discussion about body positivity and eating disorders.
The mission of the Lesley University Body Peace Revolution is to provide a safe space while raising awareness of the issues of body image and how the media portrays the "ideal body." The Lesley University Body Peace Revolution aims to offer a space for those personally impacted by eating disorders and poor body image to heal and to educate the Lesley community of the impacts of these disorders and how to raise awareness themselves.
1. COMMUNITY: The Lesley University Body Peace Revolution understands the importance of building a safer and more understanding community within its members and the greater university community through collaboration, education, and outreach
2. AWARENESS: The Lesley University Body Peace Revolution is committed to educating the Lesley University community about topics surrounding body image and eating disorders.
3. SELF-RESPECT: The Lesley University Body Peace Revolution aims to spread the idea of positive self-love, self-image, and body positivity in order to give members the opportunity to demonstrate self-care.
4. EMPOWERMENT: The Lesley University Body Peace Revolution provides tools and knowledge to encourage the community to take responsibility of their words and actions in order to improve their relationship with themselves.
