Announcing National Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2020!

NEDA Staff

 

 

In 2019, NEDAwareness Week encouraged you to Come as You Are, highlighting NEDA’s movement towards inclusivity in the greater eating disorder community and unifying the field. This campaign expressed that, regardless of your body shape, weight, race, gender identity, ability, religion, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, or your stage of body acceptance and eating disorder recovery, your story is valid and deserves to be heard.

Building off last year’s success and continued relevance, we want you to Come as You Are again for NEDAwareness Week 2020! From February 24th to March 1st, we encourage our community to embrace this year’s theme, Come as You Are: Hindsight is 20/20, by reflecting on the positive steps they’ve taken — including those stemming from setbacks or challenges — toward accepting themselves and others.

Here are some ways you can get involved:

Register Your Organization as a NEDAwareness Week Collaborator 

Schools, nonprofits, companies, media outlets, treatment centers, and more are all encouraged to join us as NEDAwareness Week Partners to help raise awareness. You can follow this link to learn more and register.

Join the Conversation on Social Media!

We have sample messages & shareable graphics (and much more to come!) to make it easy for you to support NEDAwareness Week on social media. Be sure to use the campaign hashtags, #NEDAwareness & #ComeAsYouAre, and follow us on social media.

Volunteer as a Landmark Photographer!

This #NEDAwareness Week, iconic landmarks in cities across the country will once again be lit in our signature blue and green colors. We have been honored to have an increasing number of prominent venues become involved in our campaign as lighting partners year after year. In 2019, we had 108 lightings in 44 states! If you would like to volunteer to attend a lighting and take a photograph, please fill out this quick survey.
