Dress for Success Dallas
Dress for Success' mission is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Funding will support their three-fold program to celebrate women who have excelled in civic life; educate the public on gender equity and the progress of women's rights with the 19th Amendment, the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act; and activate women to become more active in the socio-political life of their community. Activating women will include volunteering, voting and serving others. This program will span all of 2020. Dress for Success serves over 2,000 women, the majority of whom are single mothers ages 24 to 56. They anticipate getting 500 women to the polls to vote as well as reach 500 youth with their educational information.
