The Love, Unity & Values (LUV) Institute is taking a stand to combat violence in Chicago by starting a LUV Movement! We are encouraging individuals and groups to join us in this effort by creating initiatives that interrupt violence in Chicago and build up one another in love. Students ages 14-24 are encouraged to apply, especially if they have impacted their communities or schools with peace rallies, art expositions, musicals, or media campaigns. We encourage individuals to take a leap of faith and start LUV Movements in which they would be able to change hearts, suppress violence, and empower others to do the same. This year we want help individuals and groups to make a difference in their communities and schools by giving them resources to create a new initiative or continue their passion. Winners will be awarded $1,000, guided by a LUV Institute coach and recognized at The LUV Awards on November 14, 2014. Applications are due October 10, 2014 5p.m. CST.
