Why participate in our MOVEment?
The Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a fundraising campaign created by The Junior League to raise awareness around poverty and the restrictions poverty places on choices, opportunities, and access to resources. Traditionally, league members wear one black dress for five consecutive days, in an effort to spark conversations and awareness about poverty and related issues. In 2019, the Junior League of Moore County (JLMC) put our own spin on the LBDI by turning the event into a fun run. This year, and in the time of COVID, LBDI has become a virtual MOVEment…in a little black dress!
JLMC challenges you to join our Little Black Dress MOVEment and move every day for the month of September! Log your minutes of MOVEment on the digital calendar provided when you register, and challenge your friends and family to move with you.
JLMC is dedicated to improving the lives of youth in our community who are experiencing the negative effects of poverty. Proceeds from the event will support ongoing projects with our community partners that have a shared vision of supporting children and teens facing food insecurity, delinquency, are in the foster care system and/or potential targets of human trafficking.
