JUNIOR LEAGUE OF PASADENA ANNOUNCES LITTLE BLACK DRESS INITIATIVE
The week long poverty-awareness campaign will run from Monday, February 6th to Friday, February 10th. Many members of the The Junior League of Pasadena, Inc. (JLP) will wear a single black dress or black ensemble to work each day to illustrate the effects poverty can have on a woman’s access to resources, confidence, and opportunities.
This low-cost operation will raise awareness among JLP members and the public about the work JLP is doing to support and develop the potential of women by initiating conversations with colleagues, family, and friends. Beyond seeing people at their places of work and in the community, these members will be documenting the emotions and tribulations that this project brings up through their individual social media outlets using the #TheLBDI and #JLPLBDI.
