The Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is an campaign that aims to bring awareness of neighbors in our community facing distress, whether it be poverty, violence, or inequality. Started by the Junior League of London in 2014, the initiative is now growing in communities stateside.
Participants wear one black dress, or other black attire, for five consecutive days to highlight the effect distressful situations can have on one’s access to resources, confidence, and opportunities. Each participant will use social media to increase community awareness and drive online donations through a fundraising site.
Funds raised from the campaign will directly impact our community through supporting the mission of JLSB: an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
The Junior League of South Bend’s third annual Little Black Dress Initiative will be held March 18-22, 2019. Donate today!
