The Tucson Urban League is an empowerment center. Our programs identify people in need and connect them to services to eliminate opportunity disparities and increase economic and social outcomes. For over 43 years, our programs have been critical to making our region’s economy grow and meet today’s workforce needs. Our programs address the needs of Southern Arizonans of all ages and ethnicities and move people out of poverty and into a livable wage to support their families and community.
In 1971, as a response to a significantly high unemployment rate among Tucson minorities, the Tucson Urban League became the 97th affiliate of the National Urban League. We are a leading force in creating change for minorities in southern Arizona.
The Tucson Urban League, an affiliate of the National Urban League, is an interracial, non-partisan community service organization using methods of social work, economics, law, business, and other disciplines to help secure equality for all Americans in every sector of our society.
The Tucson Urban League is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization
