One of Alliance for Girls’ members, Connie Sobczak, Executive Director of The Body Positive, delivered a brilliant and moving TEDx talk that was released in April! Check it out:

“A comment I hear a lot is, ‘Sure, you can have self-love, Connie, but I can’t. There are just too many things I don’t like about myself.’ So here’s the most important message I hope you’ll take away from my talk today: Self-love, the self-protection kind, is here for us, even when we don’t like ourselves. And what I find so powerful is that it can also protect us from the harsh judgments that come at us from other people.”
