Community & Civic Engagement

The Urban League Twin Cities is working to build a stronger, more engaged, connected and empowered community. We believe that building power and expanding leadership through community engagement is one of the most effective ways to create lasting change.


With the help of community members, we generate ideas to better understand issues, identify concerns and consideration and help with problem solving. The Urban League hosts listening sessions, quarterly policy forums and other events to provide opportunities for the community to learn and act together as advocates.

We also bring people from diverse backgrounds together for community building through fun family-friendly activities like our annual Family Day and Black History Month Breakfast. These events offer people opportunities to come together and get to know each other to create a stronger, more inclusive community.


Get engaged and attend a community event.



Real Talk, the Urban League Twin Cities’ virtual town hall-style forum, was launched in April 2020 to address misinformation related to COVID.  Since then the conversations have expanded to include a range of conversations on topics that are vital to the African American community.
