The Los Angeles Urban League is one of 92 affiliates of the National Urban League (NUL). Currently, the NUL is putting into action a new phase of civil rights and social justice advocacy and activism, the 3 D’s—Defend Democracy, Demand Diversity, and Defeat Poverty. The “D3” campaign elevates and enhances our organization’s historical commitment to employment, education, housing, healthcare, and equitable justice in the face of renewed threats. The D3 campaign will target voter suppression, the “anti-woke” backlash against racial justice, and the persistent structural barriers to economic opportunities, bending the moral arc of the universe back toward justice.
Combat and overturn racially targeted voter suppression tactics such as gerrymandering, strict voter ID laws, the shuttering of polling places in predominantly minority neighborhoods, limits on early voting, and reckless purging of voter rolls.
Overcome the white supremacist “anti-woke” backlash to diversity, equity, and inclusion policies in employment and education, access to housing and healthcare, and the criminal justice system.
Dismantle the structural and institutional barriers to financial services, social safety net programs, quality educational resources, and other economic opportunities.
