The hashtag stands for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, a movement that lasts from February 25 to March 3, which aims to combat society’s beauty standards and promote self-acceptance.
The annual initiative was created by the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), a nonprofit that offers programs and services to people experiencing eating disorders.
This year, the organization aims to make conversations about eating disorders more inclusive by amplifying stories from people of marginalized communities.
