The Mission of the Urban League Movement is to enable African Americans to secure the economic Self-Reliance, Parity, Power and Civil Rights. The Mission of the Urban League of the State of Arkansas is: to advance economic and social prosperity for African Americans and other underserved Arkansans by creating access to opportunity through advocacy, community, partnerships, programs and services. Our strategy for pursuing this mission is:
1. Ensuring that our young children are well educated and equipped for economic self-reliance in the 21st century,
2. Helping adults attain economic self-sufficiency through good jobs, home ownership, entrepreneurship and wealth accumulation, and
3. Ensuring our civil rights by eradicating all barriers to insure equal participation in the economic and social mainstream of America.
