2021 Equal Opportunity Day

Thursday, September 23, 2021

Annual fundraiser: A celebration of diversity and inclusion.

The Indianapolis Urban League (IUL) continues to be the leading voice articulating the need for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Central Indiana Community.  With the state of our country and the future fate of our underserved populations at risk, we strive to be the safe haven offering tangible resources and viable solutions to the individuals and families we empower on a daily basis. We remain committed to our mission while growing our programs to meet the needs of our clients and the demands of the workforce and continue the ongoing fight for inclusive economics, bias crimes legislation, livable wages, criminal justice reform, improved police/community relations, protections for citizens against evictions and payday lenders with excessive loan rates.

Since its inception, Equal Opportunity Day unites leaders while celebrating the accomplishments of our aspiring youth, underserved and underemployed adults, The Exchange fellows, and raises awareness of our most pressing community challenges while raising funds to directly support programs and services for underserved residents in our community.
