"Empowering African-Americans and other disenfranchised Long Islanders to secure economic self-reliance, parity, power and civil rights."

We Got Now 2013


This auxiliary organization of the Urban League of Long Island, Inc. has individuals between ages 21 and 40 who live, work and serve in the Nassau and Suffolk County.

The chapter is one of the 36 chapters of the National Urban League Young Professionals, which serves as the umbrella organization under the National Urban League to support the League's 5-point empowerment agenda:

  • Education and Youth Empowerment
  • Economic Empowerment
  • Health and Quality of Life Empowerment
  • Civic Empowerment
  • Civil Rights and Racial Justice Empowerment

Since 1910, the Urban League, by its very design, has focused on answering that one question: "How do we address the needs of the people?" The response to this question is what the Urban League "MOVEMENT" is all about?

As Young Professionals, it is our RESPONSIBILITY to answer this same question as it relates to current and future young professionals on Long Island. In doing so, we must remain committed to building and refining young professionals.
