For more than 20 years, Junior League members have worked together to identify unmet needs, forge effective coalitions and work for change, all on a volunteer basis. No other non-profit works quite the way that Junior Leagues do.

Ask Me About My Dress! The Little Black Dress Initiative

What is "The Little Black Dress Initiative"?

"Children comprise the largest age segment of our community, and over 28% are currently living in poverty. The Little Black Dress Initiative provides the platform to engage in open discussions about the effects of limited resources on a family, and its detrimental repercussions on literacy and education, while undermining hope for their future. We are honored to take part in this collaborative awareness campaign with our fellow Georgia Leagues, and hope to cultivate positive change with a broad brushstroke," Lin Snowe, 2015-2016 President of the Junior League of Douglas County.

How does The Little Black Dress Initiative do this? The Junior League members wear the same black dress or outfit for five consecutive days with a pin that requests the public to "Ask Me About My Dress." The goal is to start a conversation about poverty, and spreading awareness of the initiative and its objectives.
