Our Story

From March 10-16 our members from the Junior League of Charleston will amplify conversations around women in the Lowcountry who are living in poverty in our #LittleBlackDressInitiative. League members are wearing the same little black dress each day to illustrate the limitations on a woman's resources, confidence and opportunities caused by the hardships of poverty. With this small gesture, we aim to amplify the conversation surrounding financial hardship and turn attention to organizations that tackle this problem. Funds raised through the LBDI will allow the JLC to improve its community through its partnerships with community organizations and to provide member volunteers with leadership, training, and development opportunities.

In 2018, SC was ranked number 42 in the nation for people below the poverty line.

The largest demographic living in poverty in Charleston County are females ages 18-24.

15.3% of the population in Charleston County live below the poverty line, compared to national average of 14%

This initiative will support women in this demographic specifically through our many community partners including Florence Crittenton Social Services Programs, the Lowcountry Food Bank, and Backpack Buddies.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
