    Centennial Gala



    The Centennial Gala will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Urban League of Essex County (ULEC), one of the longest standing chapters of the National Urban League. Over the past 100 years, ULEC has faithfully served the Essex County community through its mission to assist African Americans and disadvantaged urban residents in the achievement of social and economic self-sufficiency. A powerful advocate for the Essex County community, ULEC has successfully spearheaded programs in the areas of education, jobs, housing, and financial empowerment. The Gala will spotlight the organization’s major achievements, celebrate the many contributions of dedicated community members, and create a vision for the path forward.

    Please join us as we enjoy a night to remember with those who have helped us to make a difference in the Essex County community!
