For your coverage of Covid-19 and how it is disproportionately affecting African Americans, as well as other related topics, we invite requests for interviews with Arva Rice, President & CEO, The New York Urban League, to speak about the work NYUL is undertaking for the community it serves in response to this pandemic.
 
The New York Urban League, an affiliate of the National Urban League, is a 501 (c)(3) civil rights organization enabling African-Americans and other underserved ethnic communities to secure a first-class education, economic self-reliance, and equal respect of their civil rights through programs, services, and advocacy in this highly diversified city. The New York Urban League is leading the way underserved African Americans are educated, employed and empowered across the 5 boroughs of New York City.  For the past 100 years, they’ve inspired, influenced and ignited over 1 million black people to achieve their highest aspirations, continually adapting to need generated by societal changes.
 
During this time of devastating pandemic the community needs the support of the NYUL more than ever.
