Our Mission

The Chicago Urban League works to achieve equity for Black families and communities through social and economic empowerment.

Our Purpose and Vision

Economic and racial equity for Black Chicago


Our programs are designed to support and strengthen our community. We help people find jobs, secure affordable housing, advance their education, and grow their businesses.

Research & Policy Center

The Chicago Urban League's Research & Policy Center provides research, landscape analyses and pragmatic, evidence-based recommendations for issues that disproportionately affect African Americans in Chicago. We also partner with policymakers and other organizations to support educational and legislative efforts designed to lessen the impact of policies and practices that disadvantage African Americans.
