Women Who Make A Difference
JOIN US AS WE CELEBRATE THE WOMEN IN OUR COMMUNITY
Each year, the Junior League of Miami hosts a spring event to recognize several outstanding women who exemplify the League’s mission of promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities. These women have made a positive contribution to Miami and/or the surrounding communities. At least one woman must be a JLM Sustaining Member.
Proceeds from this event will support programs focused on women and children at risk. Individual and corporate support will fund our community projects and signature programs. For more than 90 years, the Junior League of Miami, Inc. and the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) has worked at the forefront of social reform, tackling the toughest and most critical issues of the day — including childhood nutrition and obesity, human trafficking, foster care, juvenile justice, teen self-esteem, cybercrimes, literacy, and the environment, among others — for the purpose of enhancing the social, cultural, and political fabric of civil society. As a result of this work, JLM and AJLI — and the more than 125,000 women in over 290 communities in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Mexico who comprise its ranks — has amassed an archive of tangible results and a reputation as thoughtful and influential change agents dedicated to the public good.
