The Buffalo Urban League seeks to assist African Americans, other minorities and disadvantaged individuals, in securing economic self-reliance, parity, power and civil rights.
This purpose is driven by the National Urban League's mission and empowers those who are striving toward achieving economic self-reliance and enjoying their rights as citizens under the law.
Both the Buffalo and National Urban League's mission support the following objectives:
1. Academic preparation and social development of our children so that they are equipped for self-reliance and citizenship in the 21st Century.
2. Fostering of economic self-sufficiency through gainful employment, entrepreneurship and home ownership.
3. Promotion of racial harmony and inclusion so that opportunities inherent in the structure of American society are open to all.
