Every year Average Advocate runs a project called the LBD.Project (or the Little Black Dress Project). I’ve been talking about it a lot recently.

In it, we each choose a black item of clothing, wearing it every day through March. Through it, we learn a little about what it is like to have our choice limited and are reminded of the 21-45 million slaves in the world.

That we can do something about this oppression through the LBD.Project.

If you care about modern day slavery, I really encourage you to check LBD.Project out as we change the world together. We have some really great regional nonprofits as well as this year’s featured international org, Hope For Justice, whom we are working with.

Let’s be world changers together.


Please consider this your personal invitation to join us in something black and/or donate $10 to help all of your fellow average advocate hoodlums as we embark on 31 days of commitment to stand on behalf of the oppressed.
You can do it, brave one.


Learn how here.

Love always,

Hi! Let me introduce myself with my lovely cheesy fake smile. I’m Elisa Johnston and this is where I base online (in real life I’m usually in beautiful San Diego, CA).

I’m here to empower you,  an everyday, super busy, normal person who’s figuring out this adulting thing and who cares about stuff. I help you to be an influencer who makes a difference in the world. 

Stick around Average Advocate and together we will move past the overwhelm of life and the despair of global problems, find your purpose, and discover what your best role is to change the world is. 

I’m no magician. I just encourage and guide as I  write, coach, speak, consult and start-world-changing things to help us move forward.  

In case I sounded unapproachable, let me tell you a little bit about myself. Besides empowering this community, I spend most of my time attempting to live intentionally in my faith (I’m a Jesus person), in my home (the husband + raising my three kids + adult kid), in my relationships, and being creative and adventuring wherever and whenever I can. (Ya, I might live in beautiful San Diego, but I’m always itching to explore.)

Now it is your turn…  What’s your story?
