This is a good boilerplate letter from Linda Bacon, author of Health at Every Size, that you can adapt if your workplace (or local government, or other organization you are involved in) has an "anti-obesity" campaign.

Thank you for sharing that. They apparently do a campaign here every fucking January. I fucking hate January.

Thanks! That's an excellent link. Now that I think about it, my college actually isn't doing any kind of nasty anti-fat campaign, which is pretty impressive. I'll have to ask at the health center whether they're conscious of that decision and HAES.
