Little Black Dress Initiative Is Here! 10/14/19 - 10/18/19
Little Black Dress Initiative (#LBDI) is a week-long awareness and fundraising campaign that harnesses the power of social media and doing something “a little different” in order to educate people about local issues that Leagues work on in their communities.
In Indian River County, our LBDI will underscore violence against women.
Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a week-long social media-driven fundraising campaign that uses the iconic ‘little black dress’ to raise awareness about poverty and its effects on women in our community.
Junior League of Indian River LBDI Advocates wear the same black dress (or outfit) for five consecutive days to illustrate the restrictions poverty places on choices, opportunities, and access to resources effects poverty can have on a woman’s access to resources, her confidence, and professional opportunities. By wearing a button that reads “Ask Me About My Dress,” our Advocates invite dialogue among colleagues, friends, and strangers to raise awareness about violence against women.
Our League will participate in the LBDI October 14 - 18th, 2019. Support our LBDI Advocates wearing the dress by donating to the 2019 LBDI Campaign

Attendees will have exclusive access to participating stores on Ocean Drive from 6-8 pm. Stores will offer customers discounts, a percentage of their profits will be donated back to JLIR, and all proceeds from the event will benefit JLIR's initiatives and our focus area of combating violence against women. For $35 (regular tickets) or $100 (VIP), you can shop while sipping sparkling wine and tasting sweets, all to benefit a great cause. Get starting on your Christmas shopping, buy yourself something special, and have a great time! Afterward, we invite you to join our post-party at Grind and Grape and dance the night away!
