Black Girl Rest - The Ultimate Self-care Experience

All throughout Black history, slavery and during the great migration, Black people were constantly on the move and still to this day heavily dipped in GRIND culture. We need to STOP and REST." - Ladies of Virtue sis, Mikayah, age 18 #BlackGirlRest

Why do we host LOV DAY?

Many Black girls feel that their concerns go mostly unaddressed and overlooked. Research confirms what our girls have been telling us all along. Due to stereotypes, a 2017 Georgetown Law Study showed that adults believe black girls ages 5-19 need less nurturing, protection, support and comfort than their peers of the same age. We know that this perception is not reality.

We want Black girls and young women to know that they are seen, heard and loved. 

What started off as one day of celebration in 2020 has now expanded to the entire month of February!  

On February 11, 2023 from 11am to 1pm, we will kick off our LOV DAY by packing 400 LOV boxes then from 1pm to 3pm we will distribute them the boxes in the Southshore neighborhood.  Throughout the month, remaining LOV Boxes will be distributed to girls in the Chicagoland area primarily those living in neighborhoods such as Bronzeville, Englewood, North Lawndale, Near West and Austin neighborhoods.
