An Open Letter from JLGFL

Friday, June 5th, 2020

Dear Members and Community Partners,

This has been a tragic week, where we’ve all witnessed the hurt and anger on display surrounding the senseless death of George Floyd. Yet again, the call to end racial injustice is being heard across our country.

In response, we promise to sharpen our focus on the Association of Junior Leagues International’s commitment to diversity and inclusion that we adopted in 2018. We are engaging with our diversity and inclusion committee to determine ways we can affect change within our organization and contribute to change in our community. Historically, our Junior League and other Leagues around the world, have been catalysts for lasting community change. This will guide us on our journey, as will conviction and hope.

- Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale
