Make poverty unfashionable.
The Junior League of Pensacola (JULEP) members are gearing up for our 2nd annual Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI). LBDI is a fundraising campaign to bring awareness to the distresses of poverty and violence against women, and the issues women in our community struggle daily to overcome in a cycle of poverty — issues such as the threat of human trafficking and domestic violence, access to adequate childcare, food insecurity and the availability of healthy options, mental health and housing instability. This year, we are launching the LBDI campaign on March 8th – International Women’s Day, at our Inaugural Women’s Empowerment Luncheon. Find out more information about that event or buy tickets here.
