Result! Your activism makes a difference

So, you all remember the Australian effort to keep Jenny Craig's CEO from being keynote at a conference for Girls Schools, yes?

Well you need to know that the worldwide effort worked. It didn't stop the speech but it created all sorts of good results and not because of money or politics or anyone's self-interest but because people rose up together to be heard together.

June Alexander recently posted this follow-up letter to those who signed the petition.

The ability for all of us to put up alerts, share information, and multiply our efforts by doing it together is really unprecedented.

Congratulations, everyone.

It should be controversial for a diet corporation to associate with schools and health.

Weight Cycling Companies: beware. You're not selling health or self-esteem. You are selling yourselves, and it's a poisoned product. And we're watching.
