Shaping the Movement

The Urban League of Nebraska is a proud partner in the following initiatives that will measure the impact of our programs and services, discover the needs of our community and shape the future of the Urban League Movement in Nebraska:


Urban League of Nebraska Community Survey

Since 1927, the Urban League of Nebraska has been Empowering Communities and Changing Lives. In our 90th year, we need your help in measuring our impact in Greater Omaha and determining our direction for the next 90 years. This survey will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete and will provide us with valuable feedback that will shape the future of the Urban League Movement in Nebraska. More information coming soon.


Diversity & Inclusion Survey – GOAL REACHED!

A 2015 survey by the Greater Omaha Chamber found a stark difference for Black young professionals — they were 5 to 6 times less likely than their peers to recommend Greater Omaha as a place to live, work and play. In partnership with the Chamber Young Professionals, the Urban League of Nebraska Young Professionals and the Urban League of Nebraska launched a new survey aimed at capturing the voices of young professionals in Greater Omaha. The new survey closed March 10, 2017. Thank you to everyone who participated! You helped us surpass our goal for respondents. Stay tuned for next steps.


The Landscape

“Let’s make our city a great place to call home – no matter who you are or where you live.” The Landscape is a data-driven project examining six areas of community life and reflecting the lived experiences of our friends, family and neighbors in the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro area. The six areas are Health, Neighborhoods, Transportation, Safety, Workforce and Education. It will reveal where we’ve grown, where we can do better and where we have opportunities to improve our quality of life. Click here to learn more.
