New York Urban League

204 W. 136th St.
New York, NY 10030
As one of the oldest and most volunteer-dependent statewide groups, NYUL works to affect policy in the public and private sectors, so as to eliminate racism and promote opportunities for people who face barriers to full participation in American society. The National Urban League is nonprofit, nonpartisan and multi-ethnic. New Yorkas branch was founded in 1919 in response to the social difficulties surrounding African Americans migrating from the South to the industrial urban centers of the state. Today, members represent and work with all levels of business and government, and run programs that include: housing assistance, family-planning services, foster-care help, teenage-case management, and career-building services. Call the Harlem office to volunteer. Various locations, see website for information.
