The National Urban League Annual Conference will be a hybrid event in 2022! After two years as an exclusively virtual happening, the organization is returning to an in-person program.

Each year, leaders in business, government, and social advocacy gather to explore the issues and initiatives that profoundly affect the communities served by the Urban League network of 90 affiliates nationwide.
From policymakers and thought leaders to social media influencers and entrepreneurs, the National Urban League conference is the place to network, exchange ideas, gain insights, and strategize next steps toward justice.
