Democracy in Peril: Confronting the Threat Within

The National Urban League is coming to Atlanta, the cradle of American Civil Rights history and activism, for a special in-person event to mark the release of Democracy in Peril: Confronting the Threat Within The 47th edition of the organization's State of Black America® annual report on the social and economic status of Black lives in the United States. Once an underlying theme in the rhetoric of right-wing politicians and message boards on the dark web, extremism has come to the surface in mainstream America. White supremacists, racist vigilantes, and right-wing extremists have been emboldened by the former President to run for office and erase the progress achieved by generations of civil rights leaders.

The 2023 SOBA report examines rising extremism, how it results in dangerous and misguided public policy, and the threat that it poses to our safety, our way of life, and our Democracy.

On April 18, the National Urban League marks the release of its State of Black America® report with a special launch event at Morehouse College that will bring together National Urban League leaders, leading civil rights activists, as well as members of the next generation of leaders – HBCU students who will continue the fight for equity and social justice.
