The Midwest-Southern Fat Organizing Convening (MSFOC) is a virtual conference hosted by and for Fat organizers to come together across movements for training, skill sharing, community building, and collective visioning. The conference aims to develop a container for the Fat Liberation movement; visioning ourselves into the future as a movement for Fat people, in solidarity with other social justice movements. We are building relationships between Fat organizers in the Midwest and South to center this vision in historically underserved Fat organizing communities.

The convening will intentionally center BIPOC, queer and trans, and superfat folks’ leadership development and organizing identities, tactics, and strategies. Our programming will be entirely virtual, and include interactive workshops, speakers, community art projects, and social/networking events with a focus on access.

MSFOC is made possible by funding from NOLOSE, a volunteer-run organization dedicated to ending the oppression of fat people and creating vibrant fat queer culture.
