The Urban League of Eastern Massachusetts (ULEM) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization and one of the oldest affiliates within the National Urban League movement. Since 1919, the doors opened to the at-large Boston community and surrounding metropolitan area residents, ULEM has been employing a multi-point strategy to deliver services and programs which aim to increase self-reliance, specifically in the area of workforce and economic development.

The mission of the Urban League of Eastern Massachusetts is to enable adults in Eastern MA to overcome racial, social barriers, economic inequities, sexual and domestic violence to employment and economic development opportunities. For 100 years, ULEM’s free programs and services have given hope to participants and made a lasting, impactful statement in the community.

The League offers two auxiliary groups: The Urban League of Eastern MA Guild and the Young Professionals Network of the Urban League of Eastern MA, both groups have open membership, facilitate events and workshops and serve the community in alignment with ULEM’s mission and strategic goals.

Objectives for The Giving Black Day Campaign

According to the 2017 FDIC National Survey of Unbanked and Underbanked Households, “…unbanked and underbanked rates were higher among lower-income households, less-educated households, younger households, black and Hispanic households, working-age disabled households, and households with volatile income.” It is difficult to begin the work of combating economic inequity for under-served populations, when our communities lack basic checking and savings accounts. With this campaign, we hope to assist those in need with obtaining a personal checking and savings account, along with providing them with the necessary financial training to learn how to budget, build savings, and get out of debt. Help us break down the barriers to access by donating today. For a small donation of $25, you can help provide someone in need in the Eastern MA area with a pathway to economic success!
