MISSION + VISION

Our MISSION is to bring an end to the crime and violence in communities of color, in our hometown Chicago and throughout America. Our MISSION comes to life in our CRIMEDROUGHT Community Campaign.

Our VISION is healthy communities of color that flourish due to a thriving local economy and vibrant culture of wellness and wholeness. Our VISION comes to life in our efforts to open Concept Stores around Chicago and communities of color around America.

CONCEPT STORES

Our Concept Stores merge community organizing, community expression, and interactive retail experiences. The themes, focus, and activations very, and the core values remain - love, trust, and respect.

In all Concept Stores [001, 002, and 003] we hosted activations and featured installations relevant to the community's needs and desires. Each event has the common goal of healing, building, and strengthening relationships with self and others.

All Concept Stores 001 & 002 were both completely unused retail spaces. These spaces were built with the hands of the team, Youtube tutorials, and our creative vision with little to no build-out budgets.
