Today marks the first day the Junior League of San Diego (JLSD) joins The Little Black Dress Initiative (#TheLBDI) – a global mission to “Make Poverty Unfashionable.”
When we consider the symptoms of poverty – homelessness, unemployment, food insecurity and limited education – foster youth are disproportionately affected.
The Junior League of San Diego has a long-standing tradition supporting foster youth. Therefore, throughout this #TheLBDI week, February 6-10, 2017, our Junior League of San Diego members will wear one black dress for five days to spark a conversation about foster youth and how everyone can help break their cycle of poverty.
The Junior League of San Diego invites YOU to join the cause. Lend your voice to our mission to “Make Poverty Unfashionable.” When you see see your JLSD friend, neighbor, or colleague supporting The Little Black Dress Initiative this week, consider:
