From Oct. 17 - 21, 2016, members will wear one black dress or ensemble to collectively illustrate the impact the lack of access to essential needs, such as food and shelter, can have on opportunities in the Lansing community.

The effort is open to anyone interested in helping raise awareness not only about access to essential needs, but also about the work JLL is doing in Greater Lansing.
