Creating our own opportunities of healing...

Nalgona Positivity Pride (NPP) is a grassroots eating disorders awareness organization that provides intersectional eating disorders education and community-based support for Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) 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 BIPOC folks find education and resources for self-empowering, resistance, and healing.

In addition NPP has:

- been featured in MiTu, NPR, Bitch Magazine, Remezcla, Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan, Latina, and Bustle.

- spoken in multiple national conferences including The Binge Eating Disorder Association Conference, National Eating Disorders Association, & The Fat Activism Conference

- lectured internationally and has spoken at The University of California, Santa Cruz, The University of Texas at San Antonio, School of Social Work University of Michigan, and the University of California, Los Angeles

- over 100k social media followers

- collaborated with The Body is Not An Apology, Association for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH), National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA,) and Trans-Folx Fighting Eating Disorders (T-Ffed).

Finally, NPP lectures, hosts events, offers business consultation, hosts support groups, and creates social media content as a way to reach out to and empowers the individuals whose bodies are systematically at the margins of white/mainstream ‘body positivity’ movements.
