The Junior League of Sarasota Inc. welcomes all women who value our Mission. We are committed to inclusive environments of diverse individuals, organizations and communities.
Recent events across the globe have brought us to a pivotal moment in history where we need to speak up for the values our organization believes in. The AJLI Board understands that it is important for us to listen, learn and engage. Conversations on race can be painful, hard and personal. It is more important than ever for us to be open, vulnerable and actively listening.
The Association of Junior Leagues International condemns discrimination, racism, and racial injustice in our communities and in our Junior Leagues. Black women and other women of color have been systemically denied equity and inclusion in our economy, education, civic privileges, and responsibilities in the voluntary sector, including in The Junior League. As affirmed by our member Junior Leagues, we are accelerating our efforts to take action and advance definitive, measurable policies and practices that eliminate racism in our countries, our communities, and our Junior Leagues. When we do this, we unlock tremendous power for our communities and realize our vision of women around the world as catalysts for lasting change.
The Done in a Day Committee plans and coordinates projects that can be completed in one day. They provide hands-on service opportunities for our League members by partnering with other organizations to improve our community.
Little Black Dress 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. This year’s campaign has been postponed.
SPAC (State Public Affairs Committee) is the advocacy arm of the Junior League of Sarasota, with goals of educating members on legislative measures, ballot initiatives and issues that affect our local community.
