FOSTER CITY, Calif. - Nov. 9, 2018 - PRLog -- NAAFA, the civil rights organization working for Equality at Every Size, is excited to announce that author/activist Jes Baker will join us as a keynote speaker for our 50th Anniversary Conference. This historic event will be held June 14-16, 2019 at Sam's Town Hotel and Gambling Hall in Las Vegas, NV. Our conference theme is "Honoring Our Past; Creating Our Future," and we believe Jes is a key leader in the future of fat rights activism.

Jes  Baker  is  a  positive,  progressive,  and  magnificently  irreverent  force  to  be  reckoned  with  in  the  realm  of  self-love  advocacy  and  mental  health.  She  is  internationally  known  for  preaching  the  importance  of  body  liberation,  hard  conversations,  strong  coffee,  and  even  stronger  language.

Jes  burst  onto  the  body  positivity  scene  when  she  created  her  own  ads  mocking  Abercrombie  &  Fitch  for  discriminating  against  all  body  types—a  move  that  landed  her  on  the  Today  Show  and  garnered  a  loyal  following  for  her  raw,  honest,  and  attitude-filled  blog  missives.

When  not  writing,  Jes  spends  her  time  speaking  around  the  world,  working  with  plus  size  clothing  companies,  organizing  body  liberation  events,  taking  pictures  in  her  underwear  and  attempting  to  convince  her  cats  that  they  like  to  wear  bow  ties.  Learn more about  Jes  at
