Pursuing Social and Economic Parity

Los Angeles Urban League

In 1921, the Tuskegee Industrial Welfare League was formed in an effort to empower African Americans in Los Angeles and to advocate social and economic change. Several months after its creation, the organization merged with the National Urban League to form the Los Angeles Urban League (LAUL).

LAUL offers diverse programs focused on advocacy, entrepreneurship, and workforce development in Los Angeles' African American community as well as other diverse communities in the region. Programs include the Construction Career Academy, an eight-week program that trains participants for career pathways into construction and prepares them to pass a trade-union entry exam. Biz Camp is a free, three-week, summer program that encourages youth to become entrepreneurs. LAUL's two-day intensive Entrepreneurship Workshop invites speakers from prominent and successful companies to offer advice and mentorship to participants. All of these programs seek to empower community members and promote social and economic equity.
