urbanleague f Eastern Massachosts "The Urban League of Eastem Massachusetts Movement Towards Diversity Equity and Inclusion for All" The COVID -19 pandemic caused the Urban League of Eastem Massachusetts (ULEM) to close our facility to the public on March 13, 2020, for the safety of students, staf, and the community. However, we remained vigilant, shifting our job training programs to virtual online classrooms, while our staff remained working remotely. Additionally, the front line work of our Domestic and Sexual Violence Project continued to provide support as many of our families adjusted to new challenges related to stay at home and other policies. J. Keith Motley PhD Closing our 88 Warren Street facility to the public has not meant that there is a morato- tium on ULEM programs and services. We have responded by creating the "Leaders Over Lunch", a webinar series where ULEM Joseph D. Feaster Jr. Esq. Chair Joseph Feaster Jr. and I as Consultant President & CEO, invite leaders to discuss topics that critically impact the Black and Brown communities we serve. Special Guests have included Massachu- setts Labor Secretary Rosalin Acosta discussing unemployment benefits at the onset of COVID, the Asian American Commission and the Anti-Defamation League uniting with ULEM against racism and hatred, National Urban League President Marc Morial reviewing the annual "State of Black America" report, and many more critical issues. In the face of long-standing civil rights violations and social injustices, now exposed to the world by the murder of George Floyd, ULEM formed the 1619 Project. Collaborating with 50 local Black and Brown organizations, we mobilized 500+ volunteers to protect polling sites during the November2020 elections. In addition, we established partnerships with health care providers to deliver COVID mobile testing, coordinated with vaccination sites through- out our underserved communities, distributed 2 million face masks to the community with WESNET INC CEO Gordon Thompson for protection during the holidays and handed out winter coats from ULEM's Roxbury headquarters to neighborhood veterans of color. We now set our sights on the future, guided by 5 ULEM pillars, 1, Education & Youth Development 2. Jobs & Business Development 3. Community Develop- ment 4. Health & Quality of Life and 5. Justice & Civic Engagement. Key to our strategy is establishing partnerships which deliver programs and services that, after surveying the community'stakeholders, are deemed to be most benefi- cal for creating Diversity, Inclusion and Equity in the months and years ahead. We Invite you to take a front row seat as a Special Guest and hear directly from the ULEM board of directors at our VIRTUAL ANNUAL MEETING Thursday February 3, 2022, at 6:00pm The theme will be "Leading the Way Towards Diversity Equity and Inclusion" Joining us in conversation will be President & CEO of the Boston Foundation Dr. Lee Pelton a dynamic leader who has been on the frontline of actions related to DEI for decades here in Boston.
