Cosette Nazon-Wilburn

Executive Director, Love, Unity and Values Institute

2020 Chicago Peace Fellow

Cosette Nazon-Wilburn is a humanitarian, teacher, marketing entrepreneur and executive director of the Love, Unity and Values (LUV) Institute, a not-for-profit organization actively working to reduce poverty among vulnerable youth impacted by trauma, ages 11 to 24, at critical stages in their lives. Through its five programs and professional development workshops, LUV is building youth resiliency through social-emotional learning, providing college and workforce readiness, and facilitating job placement for more than 300 youth annually. A fearless and dedicated community activist organization focused on bringing law enforcement and youth together, LUV was selected to oversee the 2019 Hyde Park Halloween Festival. As a result, there were no arrests or vandalism. This is a significant improvement from the 2018 event, which cited significant property damage and 12 arrests. LUV will continue to lead the event in 2020. Cosette and her organization are recipients of several community awards.
