Julie's lobby against ED
Organized by: Julie Parker
I promise that someone you know, or are very close with, has struggled or is struggling with an eating disorder. It's not vanity. It's not a joke. It's a disease that is difficult to treat with current insurance policy. And harder to address because of social stigma. Recovery is possible and should be accessible. Please help erase the stigma and take steps to fight the disorder that kills more than any other mental illness. Fighting this disease is as important as fighting the physical and anatomical diseases about which we hear much more! So I am going to advocate through http://www.marchagainsted.com and Lobby Day! Where I will meet with senators and policy makers to discuss recovery from eating disorders. I am asking for help to finance the trip of other survivors, and then to donate to the Alliance for Eating Disorders and their tireless efforts. I would be happy to share my story with you if you would like. Thank you for your time and support!
