Look out for the National Urban League coffee table book,
travelling exhibit and more in celebration of 100 years of empowerment! You can
also visit http://www.nul.org/ and view an
interactive timeline.

While the centennial celebration is a time to reflect on
the rich history and legacy of the National Urban League. It is also a time to
look forward as the transformative movement of the National Urban League
continues to serve the emerging and future needs of urban America.

With a proven track record of pulling people out of
poverty and putting them on the path to empowerment, the National Urban League
celebrates its centennial by launching the I AM EMPOWERED campaign instilling a
message of hope and individual empowerment to make a lasting difference. Focused
on four inspirational goals for America, in the areas of education, employment,
housing and healthcare, I AM EMPOWERED will galvanize millions of people to take
a pledge to commit to help achieve the goals by 2025!

Through a robust national multi-media campaign with
messages centered on the theme of empowerment, the National Urban League is
engaging individuals, communities, corporations and government agencies to
improve the state of America and pledge to commit to their time and talent to
the following Empowerment Goals:

  • Education: Every American child is ready for college,
    work and life.
  • Jobs: Every American has access to jobs with a living
    wage and good benefits.
  • Housing: Every American lives in safe, decent, affordable
    and energy efficient housing on fair terms.
  • Health care: Every American has access to quality and
    affordable health care solutions.

This motivating campaign reminds everyone of the power of
the individual to become a force for change by encouraging collective action to
bring change to entire communities and urban areas. The nine historically Black
Greek letter organizations that make up the National Pan-Hellenic Council, the
“Divine Nine” have partnered with the National Urban League, along with the
National Council of La Raza and other civic and community organizations to
spread this message of empowerment and achieve these goals by 2025.

Become a part of the excitement and celebrate a legacy of
service as the National Urban League prepares for the next 100 years of
progress!
