The Minneapolis Urban League is partnering with local emergency response organizations to assist in providing direction and support to victims of the tornado that ripped through North Minneapolis on Sunday.  Many of the staff, families, and constituents of the MUL have been affected by this devastating storm. 

The MUL’s Glover-Sudduth Building on the north side (612-302-3100) and our Sharon Sayles-Belton Community Services Building on the south side (612-827-5673) are open and available to take inquiries. The Urban League Academy Elementary and High Schools are closed while city officials and utility companies are determining the safety of the area. 

The MUL will also be working with other community partners to assess the damage and needs in North Minneapolis and provide additional onsite support to the relief efforts in the area.
