Website For The:
Council on Size & Weight Discrimination

Bertranndo, the Fat Pride Times graveyard shift staff member, is a fine and respected man around here and he proved it once again with a nice website find we were unaware of: "The Council on Size & Weight Discrimination". Bertranndo can always be counted on for finding news that we can all use. This organization is out of New York and up front they tell you what they stand for: "The Council on Size & Weight Discrimination is a not-for-profit group which works to change people's attitudes about weight. We act as consumer advocates for larger people, especially in the areas of medical treatment, job discrimination, and media images." (quote from their official site). The site is loaded with loads of useful information and they are fighting the good fight since 2000. Respect. Here is their basic organizational info from their webpage: Council on Size & Weight Discrimination, Inc. A not-for-profit advocacy organization working to end discrimination against people who are heavier than average. PO Box 305 Mt. Marion, NY 12456 Phone: 845-679-1209 Fax: 845-679-1206 Email: Website: Council on Size & Weight Discrimination
