Urban League Celebrates 100th Founders Day

NEW YORK - As it launches its second century of economic empowerment leadership, the National Urban League and more than 70 affiliates across the country will recognize the inspiration and vision of George Edmund Haynes and Ruth Standish Baldwin with a Centennial Founders’ Day Celebration tomorrow.

 “It’s been a remarkable century for the Urban League Movement,” said Marc H. Morial, President and CEO of the National Urban League. “We’ve made great strides, opened many doors and turned a climate of fear into a climate of hope. But more work remains to be done, and we are guided by the spirit of determination and dedication that moved our founders.” 

“Congratulations to the National Urban League on its centennial celebration,” said Marvin Odum, President, Shell Oil Company, sponsor of the National Urban League Founders’ Day Reception.  “Shell and the National Urban league have fostered a long, productive relationship to advance educational and economic opportunities for people of color – a partnership that closely aligns with Shell’s firm commitment to diversity and inclusiveness at all levels throughout our organization.”
