Poverty and lack of education form a vicious cycle that can be impossible to escape without the means to get a good job and change your life. This week was our 3rd Annual Little Black Dress Initiative campaign. Advocates have worn the same black dress for 5 days in a row to illustrate the effects that poverty can have on a woman’s access to resources, her self-esteem, and professional opportunities. Help us raise support efforts to break the cycle of poverty in Topeka. Thank you to the numerous women and community partners in Topeka who are helping #JLTopeka raise money for and bring awareness on the issue of community instability in Topeka. With your support we hope to meet our goal for this year! Click here to help make this happen:https://www.gofundme.com/charity/junior-league-of-topeka
Today is the 5th and final day of the “Little Black Dress Initiative.” Today’s collage features advocates wearing their little black dresses to help illustrate how poverty can effect women’s access to opportunities and resources. The good news here is that with your help and with the support of our amazing community partners like the YWCA of NE Kansas we CAN make a difference!
Did you look in your closet full of clothes this morning and think I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!?
What if your closet only had one thing in it? Or what if your “closet” was a bag you lived out of at a hotel or homeless shelter?
Next week is our 3rd annual Little Black Dress Initiative. Junior League of Topeka members and community advocates will be wearing the same black dress every day Monday through Friday to raise awareness about the challenges facing those who live in poverty in the Topeka area and to raise money for Junior League of Topeka programs that provide food, health, and other services to the most vulnerable among us.
