About us


Body Peace is a student organization at UC Berkeley dedicated to:

  1. Promoting positive body image, mental health, and self-acceptance
  2. Challenging the diet culture and societal norms of beauty of all genders
  3. Addressing body image issues in the media
  4. Raising awareness for eating disorders and 
  5. Providing a safe, supportive space for the student body
Our general meetings are on Wednesdays, 7:30-8:30 pm, location TBD (our Facebook page will have weekly updates). We are a supportive community of strangers-become-friends passionate about making a change in our society where the diet and weight loss industry profits from insecurities, due in large part to the media’s unrealistic and limited representation of beauty.

Too many lives have been affected, whether directly or indirectly, by eating disorders and body image issues. It’s time for a change!
