About the Urban League

The National Urban League (NUL) was formed on October 11, 1910, to help African American migrants assimilate into urban life.  The NUL began with the merger of three smaller groups, The National League for the Protection of Colored Women, The Committee for Improving the Industrial Conditions for Negroes in New York, and the Committee on Urban Conditions Among Negroes in New York, all dedicated to helping Americans urban newcomers mainly from the South, expand their employment, housing, healthcare, and educational opportunities.

The Urban League of Denver (ULMD), established in 1946, has worked tirelessly to create a level playing field for African Americans and other Denver residents for more than 70 years.  The national and local level has developed a broader focus to people living in vulnerable communities with inequities in education and employment.
