Mercadito Navideño empowering communities!


BAM! Surprise - WE BACK - briefly to tell you about Mercadito Navideno : WHY WE WANT YOU TO SHOP CONSCIOUSLY this season! If you’re in Poughkeepsie, New York December 10th, 2018 10AM - 5PM come to Mercadito Navideño. Come shop from dope Vendors and enjoy FREE Yoga, Poetry Readings (Spoiler alert The_Next_Heminguey), Open Mic, and Workshops to create a community in the Hudson Valley! We’re chatting with Susie from Latinx Project that Joy has teamed up with.

We are talking about WHY we want you to #ShopLatinx to #ShopSmallBiz this holiday season. WHY we’re doing this in Poughkeepsie, NY and not NYC We want our communities to view themselves as makers & creators BUT also be FINANCIALLY empowered. To make an impact in our communities BUY from our communities this Holiday season - but even more so to remind others in their suburban + rural communities to BRING and CREATE opportunities in your own communities. We hope you’re inspired to GO AND DO THE THING!
