Thanks for your support of the volunteers. We are still accepting volunteers for Saturday, August 6th ONLY for Day of Service and Community Day activities.

 

The National Urban League National Convention, under the auspices of the Greater Baltimore Urban League, will commence in Baltimore. The convention site is the Baltimore Convention Center and the 10,000 guests will be housed in all the major hotels.

This is a historic event for the city of Baltimore as this is the very first time the National Urban League has held its convention in Baltimore. There will be several national speakers at the conference, including the presidential candidates. With this backdrop, we want the many visitors to see the greatness of Baltimore and the congeniality of its residents.
