Help Break the Cycle of Poverty

Our 2nd Annual Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a week-long, social media-driven fundraising campaign that uses the iconic little black dress to raise community awareness on the issue that poverty can have on women, especially in correlation to the workplace.

The Junior League of Seattle invites its members to wear the same black dress or outfit for five consecutive days from Monday, March 25 through Friday, March 29 to illustrate the effect poverty can have on a woman’s access to resources, her confidence, and professional opportunities. Wearing a pin that requests the public to "Ask Me About My Dress," our goal is to spark conversation and spread awareness of the impacts of poverty in our community.

Funds raised through the Little Black Dress Initiative allow JLS to improve our community through our partnerships with our community partners and provide our volunteers with leadership, training, and development opportunities.
