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
Little Black Dress Initiative Day 5
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!
DAY THREE: Advocates have taken a pledge to “live with Limitation” for 5 days by wearing the same dress each day this week for the Little Black Dress initiative. Clothing can have a profound impact on a person’s outlook and access. And when you’re one of the mothers living in poverty while trying to provide for your family can make it nearly impossible to get ahead.If you’re a parent join us in supporting these women living in poverty. Help us remove barriers and break the cycle of generational poverty. Click here to help support programs that combat community instability https://www.gofundme.com/charity/junior-league-of-topeka
