💲COVID-19 has not just disproportionately affected the health of Black Americans, but it's also hurt our wallets.

Efforts to close the racial wealth gap took a major blow as a result. However, in our recently released #StateofBlackAmerica report, we propose a new way of banking that can help Black Americans access financial services and build wealth. Read the full report and learn more about how you can take advantage of these financial services at stateofblackamerica.org.

NBA provides an escape for Bucks rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo

Signing an NBA contract didn't necessarily change the life of Milwaukee Bucks rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo, as he already had a professional deal in place in Europe. But what it did was take the teenager, and his family, out of an increasingly hostile situation in his native country that put him in....

👉🏾The annual #StateofBlackAmerica report was first released 45 years ago under the charge of our then-president Vernon Jordan, who passed away in March.

This year's report includes a special tribute to Jordan his legacy and the important foundation he laid for this esteemed report on racial progress and inequities in our country.

“This transitional moment in history would have been familiar to Jordan, who assumed leadership of the National Urban League at a time when the United States was adapting to the sweeping changes of the Civil Rights Era,” said President Marc Morial. “We were, as he put it, dealing with the rubble of the walls we tore down in the 1960s. Now we are dealing with the rubble of the walls torn down by COVID.”

The Good Trouble Vigil for Democracy is happening on Saturday, July 17 — the one-year mark of the passing of Congressman John Lewis. Join us as we carry on his legacy by with candlelight vigils being held nationwide to demand that lawmakers take action to protect our freedom to vote and rebuild our democracy. We are demanding the passage of the For the People Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, and D.C.

🙏🏾Six devastating years have passed since #SandraBland was found hanged in a #Texas jail cell under suspicious circumstances after she was pulled over and taken into #police custody for failing to signal when changing lanes.

Years later, we are still in need of deep and sweeping police reform.

✊🏿Black + Brown communities deserve justice.

Justice was never served for her murder, so we must continue to #SayHerName, especially today.

Sandra. Bland.

🙏🏾The National Urban League sends our heartfelt condolences to the loved ones of beloved actress, Suzzanne Douglas, who died at age 64.

Suzzanne was most well-known for her role as the matriarch in the 1990s sitcom, The Parent 'Hood and her role in "When They See Us." She also earned an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture in 1989.

We remember fondly seeing her each week on our screens as a loving and dynamic Black mother. Rest in power, Suzzanne.

This week's #WednesdayWisdom comes from the dynamic poet, Nikki Giovanni.

🙏🏾Today, we honor the life of Philando Castile.

Beloved by his community, coworkers and the students of the St. Paul school system, where he worked in nutrition services for 15 years, his life was extinguished live on Facebook by an officer who shot at him 7 times in front of his girlfriend and his girlfriend's young daughter. The officer was not held accountable for murdering Philando.

Former classmates and members of the community organized Central Honors Philando, an annual event to remember Philando's legacy and to award a scholarship in his name to a deserving local young student.

We continue to demand justice for Philando. We urge Senators to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act immediately.
