Our 2022 Conference Sponsors

*Collectively, as an organization, we value transparency, social justice, and advancing the field of eating disorders by providing training for practitioners to provide more inclusive care, across genders, ethnicities, socioeconomic levels, body sizes, abilities, and backgrounds.

We have worked together to build your trust in us, which is why we are apologizing and providing an explanation. If you came to this page on December 17, 2021 (or shortly after) and saw the word “overweight” instead of fat in our conference title, we want to acknowledge this incident. More importantly, we want to own and apologize for any harm this caused. Unfortunately, our language was changed when we provided the copy to our web team. We want you to know that there has been a conversation around the importance of not altering copy and more importantly, a conversation around how we operate as an organization that does not align with terms, like “overweight,” which imply that there is a certain type of size an individual should be- a term entrenched in oppressive medical weight stigma.

We understand the implications the use of this word has, especially coming from a fat-positive, weight-inclusive organization. We value your support and trust and by this incident alone, we are further united in the importance of body liberation for all bodies of all sizes and are reminded of how important the upcoming 2022 EDRS Conference is. If you would like to share a comment, experience, or thought, please email Corinne at corinne@eddecoverysupport.org

“EDRS has been an exceptional foundation that provided funds to help me recover from my eating disorder and severe trauma as a child and teen. EDRS held me when I had no family or outside support. I have been able to give back to EDRS through my recovery and years of volunteering. My life has forever been changed by these wonderful leaders and women, and with their support I am now a licensed therapist specializing in eating disorders and trauma. EDRS holds a legacy of community, grassroots and love. I am forever grateful. I owe it much of my recovery and life. With love and heart.”
