What Happens When We Say Yes to Radical Self-Love? #WhenWeSayYES

The Body is Not An Apology is in a season of tremendous growth, none of which could happen or be sustained without the amazing community of over 32,000 Unapologetic Posse Members in 42 countries around the world committed to ushering themselves and the planet into radical self-love! On Monday, June 23rd, TBINAA will launch our When We Say Yes crowd funding campaign. The campaign will seek to raise funds to build our very own online community of information, education, activism, and support around radical self-love, body empowerment, and unapologetic global transformation.

As the Leadership Circle began thinking about the reach and power of this movement, we could not help but be overtaken by the realization that this growth has been a direct result of how each of us in our own lives has chosen to say YES in places where fear would have had us stuck in No. This movement exists because people all over the planet, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, size, ability, etc. decided to say YES to the idea that it is possible to love ourselves and one another radically! WOW! What tremendous power lives in the big giant global YES!

Now, The Body is Not An Apology wants your story of YES. We want to know what happened when you said YES to radical self-love! What happened when you said YES to your own power and truth? What happens when WE say YES as a movement committed to a just, equitable, and compassionate world? Please share your story with us. It may earn you a featured spot on our social media sites or in our international When We Say YES video! Below are the guidelines for how to share your #WhenWeSayYES story with TBINAA and the world.
