Legislative Policy ConferenceThe annual Legislative Policy Conference (LPC) 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.
Interns on the Hill
The policy institute support the annual internship program by hosting our interns and providing them access to legislators on Capitol Hill. We offer our interns a rare opportunity to see how policy is shaped and influenced by law makers.
