Junior League of Louisville hasn't added a story.
Founded in 2014 by the Junior League of London, the Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a social media-driven awareness campaign and fundraiser. This is the fifth year the Junior League of Louisville has participated in this initiative. Advocates wear the same black attire and an LBDI button for 5 consecutive days to:
RAISE AWARENESS of the challenges impacting youth experiencing homelessness in Louisville.
ILLUSTRATE how the JLL and its projects and partners are working to combat some of these challenges.
RAISE FUNDS to support the Junior League of Louisville, an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Our goal is $13,000 from the Fundrazr.com campaign alone.
Thank you for your support of JLL's 2023 LBDI Week!

What else can we do to support youth experiencing homelessness in Louisville? EDUCATE, ADVOCATE, and DONATE:
EDUCATE yourselves AND the children in your lives. Coalition for the Homeless have many helpful resources (below) so that the next time you are with someone experiencing homelessness you understand the best ways to help. Our children need to know this, too. By age FIVE children can already repeat their caregiver's opinions and understanding of those experiencing homelessness. Let's work to raise a generation of compassionate and empathetic civic leaders!

How to talk to your child about homelessness:
62% of Louisvillians making minimum wage are paying more than half their wages on rent and utilities. In our city, we need 30,000 new units of affordable rental housing for the poorest Louisvillians in order to address the root cause of our high eviction rate and resulting homelessness.
