Junior League’s “Little Black Dress Initiative” Begins this Monday

The Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is an advocacy campaign that seeks to raise community awareness on the issue of generational poverty and community instability in Topeka.

The 4th annual Junior League of Topeka LBDI will be held October 17-21, 2022. During this week, JLT members and community partners 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 sticker that reads “Ask me about my Dress,” members will invite and welcome dialogue among colleagues, friends, and strangers to raise awareness about generational poverty.

This year, they are proud to be partnering with several community agencies to bring further awareness to the effects of generational poverty in our community.

Majic 107.7’s Danielle Norwood and Amber Lee will be participating in this year’s event. To learn more about the Initiative, click here.
