As a national campaign, The Weight of the Nation aims to mobilize action to slow, arrest and eventually reverse the prevalence of obesity and bring the nation to a healthier weight. You are invited to join and become a leader in this great task.

The Weight of the Nation screening kit will give you the tools you need to help activate your community and enact real change. The kit contains the full HBO Documentary Films series along with 10 bonus shorts and a robust discussion guide in English and Spanish to kick-start conversations and facilitate community action. If you or your organization has not already been contacted by us to receive The Weight of the Nation screening kits, we encourage you to order your copy (or multiple copies for your organization) and have your own screenings – in your neighborhood, your office, your school or at your community group. An exclusive ordering site has been set up for your convenience. Order online.

As you bring your community together around this issue, share your results and engage with the campaign:


ENGAGE IN CONVERSATION with @WeightoftheNtn on Twitter and encourage your followers to do the same. Use the #WeightoftheNation hashtag in your organization's tweets. On May 14, help make The Weight of the Nation premiere a success by encouraging your constituents to SIGN THE PLEDGE FOR PROGRESS.

Inspire others to TAKE ACTION.

As you find ways to share this information and organize others in your community, share your results. Every one of us has the capacity to bring about change in at least one of those arenas, and, working together, if we lose enough, we can win.
