The Tucson Urban League Mission

The mission of the Tucson Urban League is to advance economic and social prosperity for African Americans and other under served Tucson area residents by creating access to opportunity through advocacy, community partnerships, and programs and services. 



Message from the President and CEO

The situation is Ferguson, MO is troubling and raises many issues that must be addressed in our country.  The tragic death of Michael Brown is sadly another troubling chapter in our nation's racial history. The images of police officers pointing military assault weapons at peaceful protesters, and the idea of dogs being used to break up crowds is reminiscent of the oppressive south of not too long ago. When we see these images we are reminded our struggle for equal access to opportunities, jobs, education, respect and dignity continues.

Please read the National Urban League's statement and let your voice be heard in support of the Ferguson Community. We stand with the National Urban League and demand that the authorities in Ferguson sit down with community leaders and work to rebuild trust.  The Ferguson community, and our entire nation must use this tragedy to begin a discussion on the disparity gaps that exist throughout our country. We must begin a conversation that seeks to find solutions, and not just sweep the problems under the rug , and out of the headlines.
