Break the stigma that surrounds body shaming.

How To:

Enough is enough with the body shaming. Start a social media campaign at your school to break the stigma of body shaming and promote more helpful ideals. Invite everyone to get involved and share their experience with body shaming, and encourage students to share stories of body positivity. Combine this with a campaign to educate students on why body positivity and self-love are important.
