About The Event

We will be at WAR Chest Boutique in Naperville and everyone who comes will be able to not only focus on their own self love & empowerment but also share that love and empowerment with other women. We'll have an activity where women will write something they love about themselves on a piece of paper. That affirmation will be a constant reminder to always look positively at yourself. There will also be an option to have your photo taken to add to the love letters photo album. Guests will be able to write a letter to women in the safe houses that WAR Chest Boutique partners with. At 1:30, we will have some of the personnel from WAR Chest Boutique talk to us about what they do as well as a talk from Mutual Ground to raise our awareness of the world around us so we can continue to share our light and love to empower others. 3:00 RISE AND DANCE with us. - "BREAK THE CHAIN dance" We are standing side-by-side and dancing for Justice for our Sisters around the world. Learn the dance & practice it by yourself or with some friends OR just come and do your own dance to the Break the Chain music. There is NO CHARGE for this event.
