Eve Hall, president and chief executive officer of the Milwaukee Urban League, recently spoke at MUL’s 58th annual Equal Opportunity Day Luncheon. The organization works to provide workforce development and education-centered services and programs for Milwaukee’s African-American and other minority populations. Its annual luncheon celebrates MUL’s progress and honors community leaders who have actively worked for social and racial equality in Milwaukee.

  • “With the unemployment rate so high and incarceration rates so disproportionate among African-American males, which is who we primarily assist, our work is critical.”
  • “As my mother always suggests, be careful about making judgments.”
  • “We are intersecting in life in ways we never have – from personal tragedies of shootings to natural disasters that, in seconds, are wiping out homes and families; hurricanes; the firestorm devastations in California; and the drug epidemic, which has plagued minority communities for decades and has now expanded into majority communities.”
  • “We’ve got to work together to increase the minority pipeline of teachers, to work with the media on more success stories about African-Americans, and to wrap our arms around students who have experienced gunfire or deaths in their families instead of expecting them to perform business as usual in their classrooms.”
  • “Life has no barriers; only people do.”
  • “Let’s work together to make a difference in our city, county and state. If not us, then who?”
