The Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a fundraising campaign that aims to bring awareness to women facing distress, whether it be poverty, violence, or inequality. It exemplifies the Junior League of Lynchburg’s mission to empower women in the community.
Participants wear one black dress, or other black attire, for the week of October 10-14 to highlight the effect distressful situations can have on a woman’s access to resources, confidence, and opportunities. At the end of the campaign, our fundraising efforts in the form of a gift will be given back to women in the community.
