Please join us for this special event hosted and presented by Nalgona Positivity Prid. Everyone is Welcome!
The relationship developed by women of color with their bodies and food is a profound and complicated one. The advent of colonialism* brought with it a violent disruption in the lives of women of color, producing historical trauma, post traumatic slave syndrome, as wellas social and economic systems of oppression (e.g. capitalism, racism, classism, heterosexism, acculturation, and trauma). In this workshop, we will analyze how violent relationships with food are a product of colonialism and a traumatic response to it (specific to the experiences of PoC).
NPP workshops are sliding scale in order to meet people where they are at. "The economic concept of sliding scale at its most basic: people pay as they are able to for services, events and items. Those with access to more resources pay more and thus provide the cushion for those with less access to pay less, creating a sustainable economic underpinning for said services, events and items."
