During the first week of August, political, business, and community leaders met in Baltimore for the 2016 National Urban League Conference titled “Save Our Cities: Education, Jobs + Justice.”
The National Urban League Conference, presented by Toyota and Nationwide, occupies a singular echelon in Americaâ€™s cultural and political discourse. The nationâ€™s largest civil rights and social justice conference attracts thousands of the nationâ€™s most influential community leaders together with top policy-makers, academicians, business leaders, and artists for fourÂ days of dynamic dialogue, intellectual exchange, and community service.
The conferenceÂ featured family-focused Community Day for theÂ localÂ Baltimoreans, which includedÂ entertainingÂ exhibits and sessions. In addition to the exciting exhibits in the N.U.L.Â Experience, the Expo Hall included free health and wellness screenings, workshops, forums and panel discussions focused on job creation, education, health, housing, and civic engagement.
At the Small Business Matters: Entrepreneurs Summit, which is focused on the themeÂ â€œmoney, marketing, and management,â€ small business owners and those hoping to start businesses also had the opportunity to compete in the National Urban League Conference Pitch Contest.
