About LBDI

What is the Little Black Dress Initiative?

Founded in 2014 by the Junior League of London, the Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a week-long awareness and fundraising campaign that harnesses the power of social media to illustrate the restrictions poverty places on choices, opportunities, and access to resources. Advocates wear one black dress (or outfit) for five consecutive days, in an effort to spark conversations and awareness about poverty and related issues.

The Junior League of Greater Orlando has replicated this initiative in our community, collectively sparking countless conversations and raising hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of important community programs. 

Our local Junior League chapter is raising funds in order to better serve our community partners, which focuses on childhood health, hunger and poverty.
