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.
On LOV DAY - February 12, 2022 from 11am to 3pm, we will pack 350 LOV boxes and from 4pm to 6pm we distribute them the boxes in Washington Park. The remaining LOV Boxes will be distributed to girls living in South Shore, Bronzeville, Englewood, North Lawndale, Near West and Austin neighborhoods.
