The Body Political is all about connecting art to action. Check out these rad orgs doing amazing work:
The Body Is Not An Apology is an international movement committed to cultivating global Radical Self Love and Body Empowerment. Through information dissemination, personal and social transformation projects and community building, The Body is Not An Apology fosters global, radical, unapologetic self love which translates to radical human love and action in service toward a more just, equitable and compassionate world.
The Whole Human Project is a year long social, emotional, and sexuality education program for teenagers. The Whole Human Project serves low-income and at-risk students who don’t otherwise have access to progressive and holistic SEL and sex ed programs such as ours.
Body Faming is a community art project dedicated to reclaiming our bodies. The idea is that no one can shame us without our permission. However, it’s up to us to fame ourselves, love ourselves, and to be proud of ourselves. Submit your well-lit, anonymous (no faces allowed), and unedited pictures of your body. With each submission, write what you love about that body part.
