We are so glad you found us!
We know how difficult and isolating eating disorders are. Now add being Black, Indigenous, or a person of color (BIPOC) to the mix and relative resources become more scarce.
Since 2014, Nalgona Positivity Pride has actively been pursuing and creating community-based eating disorders awareness and resources for marginalized communities. Sage and Spoon was created because there is a need for more closed spaces designated for BIPOC where folks can feel seen and supported without having to explain themselves.
Together in community we can create medicine.
