From Victorian Parlor to 21st Century Boardroom: The Story of Assistance League in America

Welcoming Guest Curator – Anne Salenger, Assistance League National Historian

SEPTEMBER 4 - SEPTEMBER 27, 2015

Mary Pickford and Anne Banning, founding Members of the Assistance League.

Traditionally, women’s groups have mobilized to offer assistance to those in need. Assistance League started in the mid 1890s in Los Angeles as a small charity group of prominent society women led by Anne Banning. Throughout the Progressive Era, Assistance League grew and became a national organization in 1935. Today, Assistance League has 120 chapters across America that are nonprofit corporations helping people in need in their communities.  2015 is the 80th anniversary of National Assistance League and the 50th anniversary of the Greater San Diego chapter. Related links: www.AssistanceLeague.org
