The Chicago Urban League has been working for equity in Chicago for 105 years. For six decades of that time, our Golden Fellowship Dinner has brought our partners and friends together to celebrate progress and raise additional support for our mission.
On Friday and Saturday, November 5th and 6th, we will again gather for a Golden Fellowship Weekend. Themed 60 Years and Onward: Meeting the Moment with the Movement, this two-day event will examine current issues that underscore why the Urban League movement is more important than ever and, of course, celebrate 60 years of fellowship with our partners, friends, and supporters.
Make plans to join us now!
