The Chicago Urban League supports and advocates for economic, educational and social progress for African Americans through our agenda focused exclusively on economic empowerment as the key driver for social change.
The Chicago Urban League provides African Americans with the tools, the programs and the experiences to help them reach their full economic potential. We are committed to growing Chicago’s African-American workforce and business community with well-informed pursuit of the following four strategies:
- Ensuring that African-American children are well-educated and prepared to lead in the global economy;
- Helping individuals and families attain economic empowerment through employment, homeownership, entrepreneurship and wealth accumulation;
- Advocating for policies and programs that ensure equal participation by African Americans in the economic and social mainstream;
- Creating positive cultural images.
