Eating Disorders

Welcome to the A2A Eating Disorders Advocacy Resource Center (ARC), an outreach project of the nonprofit Adversity 2 Advocacy Alliance, aiming to help individuals impacted by eating disorders step into eating disorders advocacy.

We hope you’ll be inspired by our A2A Advocates impacted by eating disorders, and we invite you to listen to our A2A Spotlight features and A2A 1-on-1 interviews sharing powerful stories of how individuals impacted by eating disorders are turning adversity into advocacy.

While you’re here, we hope you’ll join our Eating Disorders Messages of Hope campaign. Give hope. Get hope. All in 30 seconds.  And if you’re interested in sharing YOUR story with the help of one of our professional journalists, let us know!

Oh, and please be sure to add your name to our Wall of Allies, so you can show your support for our advocates. If you’d like, we’ll also send you our free monthly e-newsletter.
