Thank you to all that attened the Martin Luther King Jr. Corporate Breakfast 2020!


SOLD OUT! 21st Annual MLK Corporate Breakfast - OUR FIRST VIRTUAL EVENT!

Thank you to all who attended on Monday January 18, 2021 for a virtual celebration honoring Dr. King.

Every year our Breakfast is an opportunity to celebrate Dr. King’s legacy of service and be inspired to live out his dream today in our homes, the community and throughout the world.  It is also a time to celebrate and honor trailblazing leaders in business and throughout the community who personify the Urban League’s mission of a more just, peaceful, equitable and thriving Grand Rapids.

We thank you for your virtual presence and your continued support of this important event which makes the work of the Urban League possible. Like Dr. King, the Urban League believes that America's true strength lies in its diversity of talents and we welcome the opportunity to serve as the bridge joining both hearts and minds to accomplish the ultimate dream.  As always, your continued support is deeply appreciated. 

For over 78 years, the Grand Rapids Urban League—now the Urban League of West Michigan—has partnered with businesses, individuals, and organizations to make West Michigan a better place to live and work. Through your hard work and giving spirit, we have addressed some of the key issues in the greater Grand Rapids community such as homelessness prevention, housing foreclosures, unemployment and under employment, education and health. Although we have made great strides, we still have a long way to go, and together we can continue to make a difference. Let us reflect upon the past while seeking hope, determination and an opportunity to act upon the promise of the future.
