Lauren Fujiu-Berger joined the Junior League of Los Angeles in 2009. Since becoming an active member of the League, Lauren’s leadership includes co-chairing JLLA’s projects at Heart of Los Angeles and United Friends of the Children, and as a former Projects Director on the Board of Directors. Lauren also represents JLLA as a fellow in the Southern California Leadership Network’s 2018 Leadership LA cohort. While her commitment to direct service to underserved members of the Los Angeles community brought her to the Junior League; the passionate and brilliant women of the Junior League inspire her continued involvement.
