All Americans would suffer under the tax scheme being debated in Congress, but the strain on communities of color would be enormous. Still suffering the fallout of the 2008 global financial and housing crisis, the long-term decline of manufacturing jobs, and the sharp curtailment of public spending since 2011, America’s communities of color do not need to see the ladder to the middle class pulled farther out of reach.

Urban League installs state of the art HVAC system On December 7, 2017, Winston-Salem Urban League (WSUL) installed phase one of a state of the art HVAC system. The system was made possible by The Cannon Foundation. On September 5, 2017, The Cannon Foundation Board of Directors approved a $50,000.00 grant to WSUL for HVAC Upgrades. WSUL approached the foundation in June of 2017 after years of searing hot summers and ice cold winters threatened WSUL’s program performance. WSUL’s two locations have a total seven HVAC units, the oldest of which is more than 40 years old. Over the course of the...

"To be clear, this is not a tax reform bill. What the Senate passed without fully reading is a massive giveaway for millionaires, billionaires, and corporations that...

An AIDS free Forsyth County? Through a partnership with Forsyth County, the Winston-Salem Urban League is combating the spread of HIV and AIDS everyday. Every Tuesday, the POSSE (Prevent Ongoing Spread of STIs Everywhere) program provides free sexually transmitted infection testing and education from the Winston-Salem Urban League downtown office. Every year, more than 4,000 residents are tested. In 2015, only 1,462 residents had HIV. There were only 55 new HIV diagnoses that year. The number of new diagnoses was so low that it is plausible to completely eliminate the spread of the virus in our community. We simply need more education, more condom...
