Black America in Crisis

The State of Black America’s Equality Index shows that Black Americans have 28% less opportunity than White Americans. But what does that number mean for the real lives of underserved Americans – and how can we improve it?

Black Americans are behind White Americans by nearly 50% in terms of economic opportunity. To combat this inequality, the National Urban League offers job-training programs that serve men like Antonio, who rose above his brushes with the juvenile justice system to get his first salaried job. He now mentors other young men looking to turn their lives around.

Black Americans are also behind by more than 20% in access to quality education. We offer after-school programs and mentors who prepare young people for college. Students like Mariah are able to receive scholarships to college with the help of an Urban League mentor.


Alysha was tired of being told she couldn't qualify to own a home. She'd tried several times, but no one would take her seriously because of her credit history. She knew she had to change her entire way of thinking about credit.

When she heard about a program being offered at the Minneapolis Urban League she stopped by one day to talk to a counselor, who guided her through the completion of mandatory financial literacy classes. Alysha then enrolled in the MUL's Realizing the American Dream program for first-time homebuyers. She was coached on budget planning and management and matched with the resources she would need to be a successful homeowner.

Thanks to the nurturing encouragement she received from MUL housing counselor Lynne Kelly and the personalized customer service she received from Associated Bank, Alysha was able to successfully close on her dream home.
