RISKS IN THE

PROPOSED FEDERAL BUDGET

Made by National Urban League
March 28, 2017

Earlier this month, President Trump released his “skinny budget” outlining the Administration’s thinking and direction. As Marc said in his statement concerning the budget: “It is jarring to see a budget proposal that is so spectacularly devoid of practicality and consideration for the average American.” We want to outline our thinking about the potential impact such a budget will have on Urban League affiliates, through reductions both in sub-grants from the National Urban League and monies that affiliates receive directly (which most often comes through cities and states).

Below you will find a program by program analysis by Don Cravins, Cy Richardson and Hal Smith those programs being reduced and/or eliminated, and what the impact would be on both the National Urban League (“the League”) and the Movement.

STATEMENT OPPOSING MUSLIM TRAVEL BAN

Made by Steven Belton
President and CEO, Minneapolis Urban League
at the
Minnesota State Capitol
March 16, 2017

Yesterday, March 16, 2017, the Trump Administration’s xenophobic, islamaphobic, racist and unconstitutional travel ban on Muslims from four African countries was supposed to take effect and but for the courageous and timely injunctive actions of two United States federal judges, it would have been implemented.

The organizations and individuals who comprise the United Black Legislative Agenda stand in solidarity with our immigrant sisters and brothers in the twin cities, the state of Minnesota and the United States, and especially African immigrants, who have been targeted by president trump because of their faith, color and national origin. This is unacceptable and un-American.

We deplore the campaign of fear that has been unleashed on immigrant children, adults and families. But, the Bible tells us at 2 Timothy 1: 7, that “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love, power and self-discipline.”

We resolve therefore to show love in the face of hate, to exercise the power of our convictions and the moral authority of being in the right, and we will be disciplined and relentless in pursuing the cause of justice. This is our solemn conviction and our prayer.

MINNEAPOLIS URBAN LEAGUE IN NEW COLLABORATION FOCUSED ON RACE BASED ECONOMIC DISPARITIES

The Unity Opportunity Collaborative (UOC) is a unique partnership of five key Minneapolis community-based institutions that will work together to overcome the appalling economic disparities that African Americans and African immigrants face. Recognizing that existing programs and strategies don’t work for many of our neighbors, the Unity Opportunity Collaborative is committed to the development
and deployment of new and innovative approaches to education and workforce development that will overcome the specific barriers to success with which many people of African descent are confronted.

Partnering with Governor Dayton, the Minnesota state legislature appropriated $4.25 million for use by the UOC to address economic disparities in key Minneapolis neighborhoods. The appropriation is a part of $37 million in Equity Appropriations approved by the Legislature, seeking to address racial and economic disparities in Minnesota communities.
