We are unapologetic and relentless advocates for equity, justice and power for African descendants.
An equitable society can be realized. We envision a future in which African descendants are fully engaged, empowered and invested in the success and well-being of the Twin Cities metropolitan area.We believe...
- The cultural heritage and assets of people of African descent are a rich resource of creativity, power and beauty.
- To become influential stakeholders in the economy, African descendants must strive for and achieve economic empowerment and self-sufficiency to build wealth that can be passed on generationally.
- Change in our personal lives, families and communities is not enough. A profound and systemic transformation is necessary.
- Unity among African descendants and collaboration across race and culture will accelerate the transformation we seek.
Minneapolis Urban League has a vital role as advocate and thought leader for issues affecting African descendants in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
