Beginning Monday April 7 through Friday April 11, Sierra College Rocklin and Nevada County campuses will present the eighth annual Love Your Body Week. The week of events celebrates our bodies in all their diversities—size, shape, color, gender, abilities, etc. Specific events will include speakers, films, panel discussions, student projects, and a display of the Body Secrets of Sierra College. Love Your Body Week is an interdisciplinary event fully conceptualized, organized, and executed by Sierra College faculty, staff, and students. The public is invited and encouraged to attend this free week of events. To view the calendar of scheduled events, check out the website at www.sierracollege.edu/lybw. Directions and maps to the two participating campuses can also be found on this website.
“We must challenge the mainstream notions of the ideal body. Love Your Body Week gives us the opportunity to educate and empower while dispelling the myths and misconceptions perpetuated by advertising, media, and popular culture” said Megan Seely, Professor of Sociology and Women’s Studies at Sierra College.
