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. It's also for the person willing to advocate for the disadvantaged and underrepresented. Essentially, the League is for the entire community. We battle for the community. We uphold the community in every way possible. HAUL works to provide all those who come through our doors the power of economic self-reliance, the power of justice, education, and advocacy.
