100 Years

Columbus Urban League’s Empowerment Day & Centennial Celebration

Opening the doors of the Huntington Empowerment Center, hosting the nation’s largest annual civil rights conference, celebrating our 100th Anniversary — your Columbus Urban League has been at the epicenter of leadership and transformational change in 2018.

At Empowerment Day 2018 (#CUL100), we celebrated those accomplishments while also looking to the next 100 years as Columbus’ Best Family Advocate. Our thanks to Honda, L Brands, Nationwide and our many other great Empowerment Day sponsors for their continued support!

Congratulations to Hal Keller of the Ohio Capital Corporation and Charles Hillman of the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority on their Honda Empowerment Awards. Learn more about these innovative leaders and how they assisted in the rebirth of an abandoned building in the King-Lincoln District, now a hub of economic and educational opportunity as the Huntington Empowerment Center.
