Little Black Dress Initiative

The Junior League of Sarasota will wear a little black mask and/or dress for five consecutive days October 19-23, 2020 drawing attention to support and assistance of the youth aging out of the foster care system in Sarasota County. These young adults are more often unprepared for living as adults, and are often more susceptible to the effects of poverty.  Your support and donations will enable us to identify where we can make an impact, utilize our resources, and partner with community agencies to help these 13-22 year olds with what they need to thrive. The Junior League of London pioneered the Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) in 2014 with the goal to “Make Poverty Unfashionable.” It continues to be a week-long, social media driven fundraising campaign that uses the iconic Little Black Dress to raise awareness about poverty and its effect in society. Participants wear one little black dress for five consecutive days and are encouraged to harness the power of their social networks. By wearing the same little black mask and/or dress each day for one week, each participant is illustrating the effects poverty can have on people's access to resources, confidence and opportunities.
