It is with heavy heart that we prepare this newsletter. The world was rocked by the passing of Mia Amber Davis, Plus super model, Plus rights advocate and the face of the Expo and the Network for the past 2 years. I have been hard pressed to find the words to describe what she meant to me and to this organization. Speaking of her in the past tense is something that has proved very difficult for me.
Thanks so much to everyone who has reached out to us to express their condolences for her loss, many who had the opportunity to see her every year at the Fuller Woman Expo. We have all come together in a way that I have never seen before. Thank you for being there for the people in your circle and reaching out to someone through your social networks.
Her courage and dedication to the movement was as remarkable as her beauty. We have to turn this devastating loss into a call to action, to continue to hold the torch that she held for the plus community. Join us as we celebrate the life of this extraordinary woman during the Expo!
Kim Coles is back again at the 2011 Expo! She has been touring the country with her G.I.F.T.S. initiative that has impacted the lives of thousands of people. You will be able to bask in the light of this extraordinary woman September 10
