2nd Annual Little Black Dress Initiative
The Junior League of Peoria presents the second annual Little Black Dress Initiative the week of September 9th-13th.
The Little Black Dress Initiative, or LBDI, is a campaign that uses the iconic image of a little black dress to bring awareness to the effects that poverty has on society, including in our own community. LBDI Advocates will wear the same black dress or outfit for the week-long campaign along with a button encouraging others to ask about their outfit. This small gesture illustrates the lack of resources and options that face families who live in poverty. Additionally, participants reflect daily on their social media platforms for additional reach and education.
Various events will take place from September 7th-13th to help raise awareness about poverty through LBDI. Events will include Yoga for All, Brunch, Adult’s Kids in the Kitchen, Happy Hour, Paint Night, and Coffee Social. Additional information on the dates, times, and locations of each event can be found online at www.juniorleagueofpeoria.org/little-black-dress-initiative or by visiting the Junior League of Peoria Facebook page.
