NAAFA's Press Conference on Bullying and Safe Schools-C-SPAN

NAAFA just had their annual conference, held in Washington DC again this year. In recent years they have started to focus very seriously on the attack on fat kids, and I am really impressed with their efforts, especially this year.

Yesterday, August 8th, NAAFA held a press conference addressing the bullying of fat kids and demanding that weight and height be included in the Safe Schools Improvement Act of 2010, which requires schools receiving federal funding to address bullying and put anti-bullying statements into their codes of conduct.
Watch NAAFA's Press Conference on Bullying and Safe Schools on C-SPAN. It's nearly 40 minutes long!

CNN also covered the story here.
