Since 1947, the Junior League of Greater Orlando has worked with local, regional, and state governments to advocate for issues related to our mission and our community focus area.
The Junior League of Greater Orlando partnered with the Junior League of Daytona Beach and the Junior League of Tampa in January of 2019 during Human Trafficking Awareness Month to execute a “Coast to Coast” social media campaign to raise awareness about human trafficking along the I-4 corridor. This campaign highlighted community leaders from across the state in an effort to raise awareness.
In 2018, the JLGO established the Human Trafficking Awareness Committee to raise awareness about the issue of human trafficking in our local Greater Orlando community. The committee successfully hosted a sold-out movie screening, informational panel, and donation drive in 2018-2019.
The JLGO participates in the State of Florida Public Affairs Committee (SPAC), an organization of League members representing 24 Junior Leagues and over 11,000 League members across the state of Florida. The State of Florida Public Affairs Committee has advocated for issues related to the Junior League mission for over 40 years.
