Welcome to Your Houston Area Urban League

Since 1968, we have been committed to protecting the interests of those who have been put aside, dismissed, and marginalized throughout the history of our nation. Our organization has been a symbol of resistance for everyday people. Who’s the everyday person? It’s the person trying to protect their civil rights and liberties. The person beginning their entrepreneurial journey and is looking to invigorate their local economy. It’s the person yearning to improve, in mind, body, and spirit.
