Knoxville Area Urban League


It’s that Time of Year!

This year our Annual Membership Meeting will be a LUNCHTIME event as we welcome Starbucks Chief Community Officer Blair Taylor! He and his teams have led some of Starbucks’ biggest recent efforts such as Starbucks College Achievement Plan, Starbucks Solution Cities™, and Starbucks Veterans initiatives.

Join us as we convene the membership and recognize the Board of Directors, corporate sponsors and volunteers who help carry out the Urban League mission throughout the year.

We are excited about sharing the many opportunities we’ve had to impact the community. Click Here for more information.  RSVP by 2/12/14 to 865-524-5511 or
