New York Urban League Centennial

CELEBRATING 100 YEARS

In recognition of our achievements and the vital role we have played in our community, the New York Urban League (NYUL) is launching a campaign to celebrate our Centennial in 2020 chaired by the New York Yankees and the Steinbrenner Family. For over 100 years, NYUL has led the way in the education, employment, and empowerment of under-served African-Americans across New York City. During this time, we are proud to have inspired, influenced, and ignited over one million Black people to achieve their highest aspirations.
