COMMUNITY ADVOCACY

In recent years, The Washington Bureau, as it is now known, focuses on policy and advocacy goals  grounded in the local program experiences of the Urban League’s more  than 90 affiliates throughout the U.S. Informed by this on-the-ground, real-world perspective, the Bureau is uniquely qualified to lead policy discussions that directly impact the capacity of urban communities to grow and prosper. The need for community-based advocacy has become more urgent as state and local governments assert a more direct role in such critical issues as workforce development, healthcare, and education.

 

Each Spring, The Washington Bureau brings the Urban League movement to Capitol Hill for its annual Legislative Policy Conference (LPC). Part of the League’s State of Black America summit, the LPC is an opportunity for Urban League affiliate presidents, board members, young professionals, and guild members to meet with U.S. representatives and congressional staff for policy updates and discussion.

 

 “Over the last year, the nation has undergone an historic transformation in its approach to racial  justice and civil rights and the National Urban League has to meet the challenges of that transformation.”

-National Urban League’s President Marc Morial.
