Now in its fourth year, we invite you to be a part of The Little Black Dress Initiative in Orlando, a campaign to increase awareness about the effects of poverty on our community, while raising funds for the Junior League of Greater Orlando. By wearing the same Little Black Dress (or outfit) for FIVE days in a row, participants will spark conversations across their networks about the effects of poverty in Central Florida and the work the JLGO does in our community.
Poverty statistics for the state of Florida*:
For more than a century, The Junior League has been on the forefront of social reform, identifying problems - childhood obesity, human trafficking, foster care, literacy, and poverty, among others - and finding solutions. Our approach is simple. Through hands-on training and formal learning opportunities, we give women the skills they need to improve the quality of life in the communities they serve. Thank you for joining in our efforts and supporting our mission of developing the potential of women and vision of being catalysts for lasting community change.
