The Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a fundraising and awareness campaign taking place during the month of October. Ambassadors wear one black dress or outfit for five consecutive days, illustrating the impact of limited resources, time, and opportunities on many victims of domestic violence, who oftentimes flee at a moment’s notice, with no resources or support, with only the clothes on her back. The campaign sparks conversations about domestic violence prevention, spreads awareness, and raises funds to support partnering organizations that directly assist victims of such crimes. The funds raised during the LBDI campaign enable the JLK to deliver on its mission of promoting voluntary service, developing the potential of women and improving the community.
