WHERE YOUR SUPPORT GOES
The National Urban League works toprovide economic empowerment, educational opportunities and the guarantee of civil rights for the underserved in America. We started our Centennial Celebration in 2010 with a bold, nationwide call to action. We launched I AM EMPOWERED, an initiative focusing on four aspirational goals for empowering communities to achieve in education, employment, housing, and healthcare, the cornerstones of our approach.
Today, the National Urban League has 88 affiliates serving 300 communities, in 36 states and the District of Columbia, providing direct services that impact and improve the lives of more than 2 million people nationwide.
