Our Mission 
The Urban League of Union County Inc., founded in 1944, is a non-profit community based organization in Elizabeth, New Jersey. We are one of 89 affiliates of the 107 year old National Urban League located in New York City. The mission of the Urban League is to assist African Americans and other minority group members in the achievement of social and economic equality.  We employ the tools and methods of social work and we intervene  at all points in the social and economic structure where the interest of blacks and other minorities and the poor are at stake. We supply information on the minority population, conduct surveys, training programs, secure jobs, motivate youth, and provide essential services in education, housing, health and welfare.
