Advocacy

SOCIAL JUSTICE RESEARCH AND ADVOCACY

The Urban League of Greater Kansas City promotes civil rights, positive race relations, respect, and understanding by actively working to eradicate barriers to equal participation in all aspects of society, whether political, economic, social, educational, or cultural.


What We Do:

  • Publish that State of Black Kansas City Equality Index which documents empirical gaps between blacks and whites in economics, health, education, social justice, and civic engagement
  • Develop programs, services and policy recommendations to remedy disparities in economics, health, education, social justice, and civic engagement
  • Convene workshops and seminars to educate and inform communities and policy makers on the social and economic disparities that exist between blacks and whites
  • Legislative policy consultations with city, county, state, and national elected officials.
