Support the Little Black Dress InitiativeSo, what exactly is the Little Black Dress Initiative? Founded in 2014 by Junior League of London, LBDI is a week-long awareness campaign that harnesses the power of social media to illustrate the restrictions poverty places on choices, opportunities and access to resources.

Junior League of the Quad Cities members will wear the same black dress/outfit for 5 consecutive days November 29 through December 3. By doing this, we hope to open up conversations about the obstacles that women have when it comes to getting mental health services. Our goal is to raise $1750 to add to the Vera French Foundation and their Women’s Health Endowment Fund, to help with long term mental health services for women.

Follow along all week to hear our personal stories and learn more about the impact of poverty on mental health in our community.

Tristan Layne Tapscott has been dubbed the “Quad Cities’ P.T. Barnum” and although the person who initially said it meant it as an insult, he happily accepts the title.
