Since 1969 the Urban League of Southern Connecticut has helped residents of Southern Connecticut improve their economic situations.
The State of Black America®, the National Urban League’s seminal annual publication, now in its 41st edition, has become one of the most highly-anticipated benchmarks and sources for thought leadership around racial equality in America across economics, employment, education, health, housing, criminal justice and civic participation. Each edition of the State of Black America® contains thoughtful commentary and insightful analysis from leading figures and thought leaders in politics, the corporate arena, NGOs, academia and popular culture.
The State of Black America® also includes the National Equality Index™, a quantitative tool for tracking racial equality in America, now in its 13th edition of the Black-White Index and its eighth edition of the Hispanic-White Index. This year’s report features the fourth edition of the Metropolitan Area Equality Index, ranking roughly 70 metro areas based on unemployment and income inequality for both Blacks and Hispanics.
