The mission of the Austin Area Urban League is to provide tools to African Americans and under-served populations to build a foundation for social and economic equality.
The National Urban League is a historic civil rights organization dedicated to economic empowerment in order to elevate the standard of living in historically under served urban communities. Founded in 1910 and headquartered in New York City, the National Urban League spearheads the efforts of its local affiliates through the development of programs, public policy research and advocacy. Today, there are more than 100 local affiliates in 36 states and the District of Columbia, providing direct services that impact and improve the lives of more than 2 million people nationwide.
The Austin Area Urban League incorporated on August 12, 1977, stands proudly as it takes its place among the 96 affiliates of the National Urban League. Although 40 years have passed since its creation, the Austin Area Urban League continues to hold fast to our original mission; one which guides our outreach, programming, partnerships and advocacy. We envision a community in which all citizens are free from barriers to education, economic and social success.
