The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness, The Eating Disorders Coalition for Research, Policy & Action (EDC) and Mothers Against Eating Disorders (MAED) proudly announce the first annual M.O.M. March on DC, September 30, 2014!

This inaugural M.O.M (Mothers and Others) March will be an historic unification of moms, families, advocates and organizations dedicated to eating disorders and related issues, collaboratively marching together on the Nation's Capitol.

The mission of the M.O.M March is both simple and powerful: raise awareness of the prevalence, stigma and devastating consequences of eating disorders; unite people from around the world to advocate for those affected by eating disorders; honor those who have lost a loved one to an eating disorder; and educate Congress in order to influence federal policy related to eating disorders.

Eating disorders are the deadliest of all mental illnesses, yet access to treatment is gravely inadequate and people continue to suffer and die unnecessarily as a result.

Please join us in marching together on September 30, 2014, followed by advocating on the Hill at the EDC's National Lobby Day October 1, 2014. Together we will make a difference and ensure that not one more precious life is lost to these treatable diseases.
