EDAW Action Hour

EDAW Action Hours are a virtual space where you'll be together with community members who want to push for change in support of people who are affected by eating disorders. We believe in community care and collective effort. 

How does it work? 

You'll join a Zoom link for a quick training (15-20 minutes) and we'll then collectively all send emails, create posts, and make calls for the remaining time. At the end, we'll celebrate our effort and discuss ways to keep up the pressure. 

What you'll need: 

  • A device (computer, phone, tablet, etc.) with internet
  • Access to Zoom and Google Docs
  • Potentially a telephone if calling folks is your preferred way to connect with people

What you'll be provided: 

  • Access to a trained facilitator who will hold space for an hour
  • Resources shared via Google Docs to help you formulate your ask and who might be an important decision-maker to direct it to (e.g., elected representative, company, organization, etc.)

Everyone is welcome, including people with living or lived experience, caregivers, professionals, and loved ones looking to support the cause.

Note: Each event will follow the same structure so choose the date to attend that works best for you! The EDAW national organizing committee prioritized having a range of dates and times available to reflect the many time zones present across Canada, instead of choosing one consistent hour.
