We had an absolutely amazing time at our 4th annual Empowerment & Policy Conference and 85th Anniversary Gala last week!


We’d like to thank every one of our more than 1,000 registrants, 100 speakers and panelists, and 55 generous sponsors who participated in our 5 plenary sessions, 21 breakout panels, and the over 120 students in our inaugural Youth Summit at the Conference.

And, we were excited to have an additional 1,000 attendees at our Gala which captured the amazing legacy of our 85 year journey, honored incredible trailblazers for African Americans in our state, and energized us all for the work ahead.

We hope that if you attended the celebrations, you learned a lot from our insightful speakers, and we urge you to stay involved with the Urban League of Louisiana! This Saturday, along with statewide partners, we are leading Black & Brown Voter Registration Day and it’s not too late to join and volunteer on the day of collective action – click here to register to volunteer!

Stay tuned for more exiting recaps from the conference and gala which will include videos of many panels and notable speakers that will live on our YouTube page.
