Your Columbus Urban League has led Central Ohio’s racial and economic equity movement for more than a century. Our culturally authentic, integrated services achieve family stability and economic mobility, touching nearly 40,000 people in 2020 alone. Thousands more now seek our help to survive health, economic and racist devastation. We relentlessly work for:

RECOVERY – emergency relief that keeps families in housing and businesses flourishing

REFORM – policies that eliminate systemic racism

RESILIENCY – coaching that boosts individual earning power while leveling the economic playing field for black communities
