-Thich Nhat Hanh

Read a letter of support from the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC), our community partner for the 2019 Little Black Dress Initiative.

The Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a fundraising campaign to bring awareness to the distresses of poverty and violence against women, and the impacts they can have on a woman’s access to resources, her confidence and professional opportunities.

How it works:

The four steps to participating in LBDI are committing to being an advocate, creating your fundraising page, setting your goal, and helping to raise awareness.
