Our Mission

Our mission is to create and take space for all marginalized bodies surviving lethal beauty standards. Free Figure's purpose is to continue building a legacy of body liberation and empowerment for all bodies and to destroy antiblack white supremacist violence. Our work includes curating healing spaces for marginalized bodies (specifically fat, Black, queer, trans, and disabled folks), radicalizing research to reveal the realities of the violence we as marginalized folks are suffering, and creating community initiatives in challenging a toxic cis-heteronormative culture that confines all of us to cages.
