Homeownership Advocacy

Greater Milwaukee Urban League’s homeownership advocacy work is an important focus of our advocacy work. On average, 26 percent of African-American residents are homeowners, compared to 72 percent of Whites. This creates a wealth gap impacting generations to come.


Collaborating with developers, leaders, supports, and the community, this new initiative will address housing discrimination and the disparity gap that exists for African-American residents in Milwaukee and Wisconsin.
