The #NoValentine Project addresses the need for sexually empowering spaces for women and femmes of colour. One of the creative ways that nvp creates that safe haven is by hosting beauty and entrepreneurial workshops in collaboration with community organizations that believe in this same vision.
Part of our project is not only to support different female organizations in recreational support, but to introduce participants to our entrepreneurial program. The pairing of recreation and this program is not only to strengthen the ties amongst the women & femmes, but also to support the creation of lasting relationships with mentors from different professional fields.
Our priority is the No Valentine community which is bonded by women and femmes of colour who may be 2slgbtq+, in sex work, and/or be from lower economic background. To put them first and gain a better understanding of their needs, our workshops focus on creating open channels of conversation.
The #NoValentine Project is anti-racist, anti-homophobic, anti-transphobic, anti-ageist, anti-xenophobic, anti-slut shaming and sex positive.
