How can you get involved?

LBDI week will take place December 4 – 8, 2023. During LBDI week, we aim to raise funds to support Junior League of Lafayette’s Mission to advance women’s leadership for meaningful community impact through volunteer action, collaboration, and training. This year’s success and our ability to make a community impact wouldn’t be possible without you. 

There are many ways you can support the Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) this year. You can DONATE to our campaign, share facts about poverty on your social media platforms, or participate in LBDI events. 

For questions regarding LBDI or how you can support our 2023 campaign, please email Danika Arenibas or Dr. Melody Baham Waltz, Little Black Dress Initiative Co-Chairs at
