Guidelines for Contacting ASDAH

ASDAH is a small, grassroots nonprofit organization that is committed to combatting fatphobia in healthcare. Our current leadership team, including our staff and Board of Directors, is comprised of 8 people. Altogether we are the equivalent of about 3 full-time staff members. We are almost all Black & fat. We are also queer, trans, neurodiverse and disabled. We do our best within the confines of our limited resources and finite capacity. Although we provide some resources to the community for free, we are not an infinite wellspring of labor & resources. Our labor is not free and is not dictated by external deadlines. This work is supported by membership dues and donations. In order to be in right relationship with us and our organization, we ask that you consider this when engaging with the organization. The best way to be in right relationship with ASDAH is to support this work by becoming a member or donating.

We are committed to examining and unlearning ways that white supremacy culture has impacted our organization and the way, things like the sense of urgency, perfectionism and valuing quantity over quality. We ask that you uphold that same commitment and keep this in mind when interacting with our organization.
