Advocacy at the National Urban League National Conference
Sam recently attended the National Urban League National Conference in Houston, TX. He met with more than 60 national, state, and local leaders. He asked them one simple question:
If we don’t make Birth to Three a national policy imperative, can we reverse poverty in America?
Sam’s initiative began in 1969 when he worked with Whitney Young, the President of the National Urban League in NYC, to mobilize investment for Black and Hispanic businesses, as back then, all the banks in NYC loaned less than $1 million to minority businesses.
