The mission of the Body Empowerment Peer Health Educators is to empower individuals to make educated decisions about their health and wellbeing. We foster inclusivity using a health at every size approach. Our work emphasizes importance of feeling empowered and safe in your body to be able to achieve your goals. We promote body empowerment through deconstructing the media, rejecting body-based oppression, advocating for joyful movement, and bridging the gap between physical and mental health. Above all, we value inclusion and justice for everybody.
Body Empowerment implements programs and events throughout the academic year to promote our main messages. Programs focus on educating students about Health at Every Size, PWS resources, and how the media impacts body image.
