For 85 years, Urban League of Louisiana has supported African Americans and other underserved communities in their pursuit of economic self-reliance, parity, power, and civil rights.
The Urban League of Louisiana is proud to release its Legislative Agenda for the 2023 Louisiana State Legislative Session. As a nonpartisan organization, the Urban League of Louisiana’s Legislative Agenda is informed by its constituents residing within the League’s seven target cities – Alexandria, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Lake Charles, New Orleans, Monroe, and Shreveport – via its policy cycle. This includes featuring a statewide listening tour, policy conference, and policy work groups; Wake Up Geaux Vote; the production of education equity reports; health equity initiatives; criminal justice reform efforts; and legislative agenda during the Louisiana legislative session.
The SEE CHANGE Collective is a catalyst for closing the wealth gap for Blacks, Hispanics, and Latinos in the Greater New Orleans Region by focusing on three pathways to wealth-building – homeownership, business ownership and entrepreneurship, and income and wages.
The mission of the Urban League of Louisiana is to assist African Americans and other communities seeking equity to secure economic self-reliance, parity, power and civil rights.
