The Junior League of Oakland-East Bay sprung into existence more than 70 years ago, but the history of the larger organization dates back to the turn of the 20th century. In 1901, Mary Harriman and 85 other women founded the Junior League for the Promotion of Settlement Movements, a charity devoted to the improvement of the human condition. Today, the Oakland-East Bay branch carries on that do-good philosophy. They've launched such nonprofits as The East Bay Children's Theatre, the Volunteer Center of the East Bay, the Family Stress Center, and Super Stars Literacy.
