The Lunior League of Greater Orlando is inviting YOU to be a part of the 3rd annual Little Black Dress Initiative!
By wearing the same Little Black Dress (or black 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.
For more than a century, Junior Leagues around the world have been working to identify problems and find solutions to childhood nutrition and obesity, human trafficking, juvenile justice, cybercrimes, among others. Our approach is simple; through hands-on training and formal learning opportunities, we give women of all ages the skills they need to improve the quality of life in the communities they serve.
Thank you for joining our efforts and supporting our mission of developing the potential of women. #theLBDIorlando
