Little Black Dress Initiative


Little Black Dress Initiative (#LBDI) is a week-long awareness and fundraising campaign that harnesses the power of social media and doing something “a little different” in order to educate people about local issues that Leagues work on in their communities.

In Kansas City, our LBDI underscores the impact of poverty on women and children.

LBDI Advocates wear the same black dress (or outfit) for five consecutive days to illustrate the restrictions poverty places on choices, opportunities, and access to resources. Advocates invite dialogue among colleagues, friends, and strangers to raise awareness about improving women’s self-sustainability in Kansas City.

When does this happen?

Our League will participate in the LBDI January 25-29, 2021.
