The mission of the League is to enable African Americans and other minorities to secure economic self-reliance, parity, power and civil rights through advocacy activities and the provision of programs and services in our uniquely diversified city and region.
The Los Angeles Urban League champions public policy initiatives that promote economic and social justice to achieve the outcomes embodied by the Urban Leagues’ empowerment goals that ensure: every American has access to job with a living wage and good benefits, ever American has access to quality and affordable healthcare solutions, every American child is ready for college work and life, and that ever American lives in safe, decent, affordable and energy efficient housing on fair terms.
The Los Angeles Urban League works to decrease unemployment and under-employment of African-Americans and other minorities by delivering employment services to individuals and families that promote economic self-sufficiency through career counseling, job placement, retention and advancement.
Our Entrepreneurship and Business Development work provides minority-owned businesses with technical training and corporate and public sector relationships to create economic opportunities that ensure long-term growth and sustainability.
For 96 years, the Los Angeles Urban League has faithfully served our community with an effervescent commitment to ensure equality, dignity, and uplift for all members of the African American and minority community.
