Birmingham Change Makers

By Junior League of Birmingham
The Junior League of Birmingham is an organization of nearly 2,300 women – driven, passionate women whose differences are valued as assets. We are fueled by a mission that has defined our path for nearly 100 years. We are change makers. We come together with a common goal to inspire and empower positive change – in our city, in the organizations we are a part of, in the lives of those we come alongside, and in our own lives. We are trailblazers. JLB strives to make a positive impact in our community by remaining committed to our vision of Building Partnerships for a Better Birmingham.
