Dangerous advertisement in college town

Hi everyone, I'm a new member who has been in recovery for a year now from ED. Recently a sign went up in my college town that not only nearly triggered me unexpectedly, but that I'm sure is causing issues for others. It is aggressively large, red, and bannered across a multi-story business building facing a major highway. The sign equates losing weight with also losing "failure", "weakness", embarrassment", "blubber" and more. When I contacted the business and tried to educate them on the threat their sign imposes, I was brushed off. So, my amazingly supportive husband and I have started an online petition to get the sign taken down. Also any tips on how we can improve it and get more attention for it are appreciated! Thanks!
