For a half-century, the New York Urban League has presented its highest honor, the Frederick Douglass Medallion, to individuals and organizations that have contributed in a wide variety of ways to the causes of social justice, education and equality. Please join us, along with New York Urban League program partners and supporters, for a night of memorable speeches, dinner, and entertainment.
Proceeds from the dinner enable the New York Urban League to positively impact the lives of more than 8,000 under-resourced residents each year. Your sponsorship ensure continued growth of high-impact programs in STEM education, College Readiness, Employment Counseling, and Technology Classes while offering flexibility to react quickly to emerging issues.
