Advocacy & Civic Engagement

Placeholder text. Talk about Advocacy here.

Our Reclaim the Vote campaign, an initiative of the National Urban League, is our effort to go from “Protest to Power” in 2020 and beyond.

The 2020 general election is less than 50 days away and exercising your right to vote has never been more important for the future of this country. COVID-19 has posed a unique threat to our Democracy by forcing millions of Americans forced to self-isolate and pushing back primary elections across the country. We have worked with Congress and our partners to push for absentee voting and voting by mail, but it is up to you to register to vote and encourage your friends, and family, do the same.

Our job is not completed until every African American in our region is registered and ready to vote in this election. To Reclaim Your Vote, follow these Five Steps

  1. Register to Vote
  2. Check Your Voting Options
  3. Find Your Polling Location
  4. Know the Candidates & The Issues
  5. Vote, Vote, and Tell Ten Friends to VOTE!!!

The Urban League is a proud partner of the following groups

Diversity Report Card

An offspring of 2012 Empowerment Week’s CEO Symposium, the Diversity Report Card asks companies to “grade” themselves on diversity in five key areas:

  • Corporate boards
  • Executive Suites
  • Employee base
  • Supplier spend
  • Community philanthropy and engagement

The initiative has been adopted by the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, and all the chambers members have been asked to grade their companies. Results will be the topic of the 2013 CEO Symposium.
