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. Advocates wear one black dress (or outfit) for five consecutive days to illustrate the effects poverty can have on a woman’s access to resources, her confidence and professional opportunities. This is a community effort open to all to join starting Monday, April 23rd to Friday, April 27th by wearing a black dress (or a black tie/bow tie for men) every day. Click LEARN MORE to donate!
