The Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a week-long campaign that uses the iconic 'little black dress' to raise awareness about poverty in Mecklenburg County. Participants wear the same dress for five consecutive days and are encouraged to harness the power of their social media platforms to drive online donations. All funds raised directly support the work and mission of the Junior League: promoting voluntarism, developing community leaders, and improving the community.
The LBDI was first started by the Junior League of London who, during London Fashion week, wore the same black dress to work, parties, dinners and events to raise funds and increase awareness of poverty in the city. The campaign was such a success, the group called on Junior League chapters across the world to host their own LBDIs throughout the year.
The League experience cultivates women into thoughtful and seasoned leaders and teaches them how to take on the toughest problems of the day and work collaboratively with all involved to arrive at pragmatic and sustainable solutions that have enhanced the quality of life in our culture.
Each member’s training starts with her Provisional course, and continues within her placement programs during her active years. In addition to the experiential training our members receive through various placements and projects, the JLC features an Education, Training and Advocacy Council that provides a variety of learning and enrichment opportunities for our members, serving the very heart of our mission.
Join the Junior League of Charlotte’s Third Annual Working Lunch on April 20, featuring Judge Glenda Hatchett.
