About The Event

 Mujeres Market gathers local womxn of color entrepreneurs, artists, writers, and collectives to display their art. Mujeres Market also includes vendors from the gender-nonconforming and transgender community. Join us for our first Riverside Mujeres Market.

Mujeres Market is put together by Nalgona Positivity Pride. Nalgona Positivity Pride (NPP)  is a xicana-indigenous body-positive organization that provides intersectional eating disorders education and community-based support for people of color who are struggling with troubled eating and poor body-image. After not seeing her own experiences reflected and the lack of cultural awareness in the eating disorder world,   Gloria Lucas started NPP in 2014 out of an urgent need to create a platform for communities of color and indigenous-descent communities who struggle alone. Gloria first-hand experienced the isolation that comes with being a person of color with an eating disorder and the absence of services for low-income people.

NPP’s line of work focuses on uncovering the impacts of colonialism, social oppression, historical trauma and its role in impairing relationships indigenous-descent people have with food and body-image. NPP’s goal is to help people of color and indigenous descent folks find education and resources for self-empowering, resistance, and healing.
