The Junior League of Philadelphia, Inc. Recognizes Pride Month

As our new League year begins, we are thrilled to work with other Junior Leagues across the world as we prepare our members to serve in our communities. We welcome all who value our Mission, and we are committed to inclusive environments of diverse individuals, organizations, and communities.

Together, we will serve as the undeterred voices for action, justice, and change.

Pride month is an opportunity to advocate for inclusion and equity for the LGBTQ+ within our league and our communities. It is also a reminder to practice our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and create opportunities for engagement wherever and whenever we can.
