Legislative Policy Conference (LPC)
The annual Legislative Policy Conference (LPC) held in the Spring, provides Urban League affiliate delegations, from around the country, the opportunity to meet face to face with their members of Congress in Washington, D.C. The National Urban League Policy Institute hosts a 2 ½ day Conference to raise the visibility of the National Urban League (NUL) and the Urban League movement on Capitol Hill. Its goal is to empower the NUL and Urban League affiliates on Capitol Hill with a common targeted policy and legislative agenda. In additional to Congressional meetings, the LPC provides information through panel and workshop discussions on key policy issues, and provides the Urban League Movement with briefings from Congressional leaders.
