The Urban League of Greater Cleveland (ULGC), a community based nonprofit organization was established in 1917, in response to the needs of families migrating from the South to urban cities in the North. Leveraging its assets as advocate and service provider, the ULGC helped to mitigate the issues of housing discrimination, limited access to employment, and poor landlord-tenant relations. In its 96-year history, the ULGC has delivered upon its mission to enable African Americans and other minority members to develop and exercise their potential on par with all other Americans through education, research, advocacy and provision of services. Partnering with government, corporate and other community organizations has enabled the ULGC’s ability to respond effectively to the needs of those on the economic and social margins.
The year 2013 began our four year movement to our Centennial in 2017. In this unprecedented period, we want to show the community that we have a strong and committed membership that supports the need for a strong and responsive Urban League. We will present you many opportunities for inclusion. We ask that you help us continue building the momentum for your Urban League serving our community every day. Become an active participant as the League continues Empowering Communities and Changing Lives.
