What in the world is the #idealasianbody ??
The issue of body image and eating disorders have been pervasive within the Asian American community. Unfortunately, there are few resources focused on understanding and challenging these problems due to popular belief in stereotypes and stigma.
Through conversations with our own communities, we want to start a movement that will reframe our understanding of what it means to be “beautiful” and redefine a term that has been shaped largely by social and cultural norms, turned pressure.
We want to center this movement around health and wellness and we want to hear your stories.
APIOPA is partnering with Thick Dumpling Skin for the #idealasianbody social media campaign. Join us in our fight for healthier and stronger Asian American communities!
STEPS TO BE INVOLVED:
We want to hear your response to this question:
