Le-Vel announced a $100,000 donation to the National Urban League in support of the organization’s mission to eliminate equality gaps in education, employment, housing, health and justice.
Founded in 1910, the National Urban League promotes economic empowerment through education and job training, housing and community development, workforce development, entrepreneurship, health and quality of life and is dedicated to helping African Americans achieve true social parity, economic self-reliance and civil rights.
“National Urban League is grateful to have the support of committed partners like Le-Vel Brands, who are passionate about expanding economic opportunity and dedicated to good corporate citizenship,” said Marc H. Morial, president and CEO of National Urban League.
“As the recent tragedies and protests around our country illustrate, we have a lot of work to do as Americans to ensure that the principles of equality are upheld and advanced,” said Le-Vel Co-CEOs Jason Camper and Paul Gravette. “The National Urban League has a long history of working at the local level to empower and support African Americans, and our donation in support of their mission is just one step in our ongoing commitment to be part of the solution.”
