WHAT IS THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS INITIATIVE?
The Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a global initiative started by the Junior League of London to raise awareness of the impact of generational poverty.
The Junior League of Springfield, MO (JLS) will participate in our inaugural Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) from February 6-10, 2017. During this week, JLS members will wear the same little black dress for five consecutive days to illustrate the effects poverty can have on a woman’s access to resources, her confidence, and her professional opportunities. By wearing a button that reads “Ask me About my Dress,” members will invite and welcome dialogue among colleagues, friends, and strangers to raise awareness about generational poverty.
