The Urban League of the State of Arkansas is structured to lead efforts in advancing and obtaining equal opportunities for all citizens with a concerted focus on the areas of Health, Education, Jobs, and Housing. We will work to advance economic and social prosperity for underserved Arkansans by creating access to opportunity through advocacy, community, partnerships, programs, and services.
Our strategy for pursuing this mission is:
Ensuring that our young children are well educated and equipped for economic self-reliance in the 21st century;
Helping adults attain economic self-sufficiency through good jobs, home ownership, entrepreneurship and wealth accumulation; and
Ensuring our civil rights by eradicating all barriers to insure equal participation in the economic and social mainstream of America.
We are the newest affiliate of the National Urban League movement and one of the only statewide affiliates. Our organizational structure consists of a diverse 16-member Board of Directors with satellite offices in Springdale, Helena and the Central office located in Little Rock.
