Our Movement
Established in 1910, The Urban League is the nation's oldest and largest community- based movement devoted to empowering African Americans to enter the economic and social mainstream. Today, the National Urban League, headquartered in New York City, spearheads the non-partisan efforts of its local affiliates. There are over 100 local affiliates of the National Urban League located in 35 states and the District of Columbia providing direct services to more than 2 million people nationwide through programs, advocacy and research.

Our Mission
The mission of the Metropolitan Wilmington Urban League (MWUL) is to enable people of color to secure economic self-reliance, parity, power, and civil rights.

The MWUL envisions a community where people, from a wide array of backgrounds and experiences, contribute to and benefit from an alliance that is committed to action- oriented public policy research, and principled advocacy.

The MWUL seeks to address the problems of equality and fairness by assuring that those who influence change represent the broader community and understand the economic and social realities facing people of color.

Our Values
The MWUL believes that every child should have access to a quality education, and every family should have access to some level of wealth.

  • The MWUL believes that equal access is an opportunity that should be afforded to every citizen.
  • The Mission believes in principled advocacy and operates under the premise of inclusiveness.
  • The MWUL believes that multiracial coalitions advance the interest of people of color, particularly in the areas of education, economic development and research/partnership development.
