For nearly a century, the Chicago Urban League has opened the doors of opportunity for African Americans through advocacy, collaboration and innovation. We are a leader in building strong sustainable African American communities and creating opportunities with the power to transform people's lives. Get involved today as a sponsor, participant or volunteer at an upcoming event, a class or through our donor and sponsor programs.
On May 2, 2016 the Chicago Urban League presented its annual SUMMIT Luncheon with the theme of Blueprint for Change: From ideas to Collective Impact. While highlighting the successes of local changemakers, whose work is making a tremendous impact on the city, we discussed strategic ways that organizations and diverse sector leaders can join together to improve the quantity, quality and consistency of services and opportunities for African Americans.
