Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle
The Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization with 82 years of activism and community experience in the heart of Seattle’s Central District. The League has historically focused its community work in the areas of education, employment, health and housing with a focus on Seattle’s disenfranchised African-American community. As economic cycles created large disparities in our class system, prison and high school drop-out rates for communities of color rose and neighborhoods suffered from gentrification. The Urban League is committed to working with Seattle’s communities to face these challenges head on. The ULMS also recognizes that communities of color share many similar struggles including but not limited to institutional racism, classism, gender and LGBT discrimination. The Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle is committed to working across the board with diverse communities in order to help make Seattle a more equitable and prosperous place to live.
