All Bodies Are Good Bodies at George Brown College | Student Group Buttons February 28 2020
So often how we come to feel about our bodies comes from external perceptions about what is "normal" and what is "different." When "different," our bodies can be discriminated against and policed and oppressed, which is then supported by the internal shame and hatred we end up feeling about our own bodies. And the effect of all of this ripples throughout our communities with far reaching effects.
George Brown College's Community Care Centre presents Sonya Renee Taylor as a keynote speaker on March 3 to discuss our bodies and our communities with her talk "The Body is Not An Apology."
Based on her book by the same name, Taylor is out to promote a philosophy of radical self-love and how self-love and love for all bodies is an act of community building. She will also be hosting a workshop on March 4 to guide participants on how to practice self-love and dismantle structural and internalized oppression and inequity within ourselves and our organizations.
In honour of these two events, the good people at CCC asked us to make some All Bodies Are Good Bodies buttons featuring the lovely art of Loreto Duran. These buttons are big, beautiful 2.25" Round Matte Buttons that we think are the perfect compliment to this year's keynote address.
