A Special Message from the MULYP President
From a SOLD OUT Professional Development conference last month to our 4th Annual YP Walk this past weekend and now our upcoming panel discussion this Thursday-we continue to bring you an array of different events to choose from to support. Founded in 1998, as we continue to grow every year and expand our event offerings, we must grow as our leadership team and committees as well. Through our 18th year of operation, we are looking for additional Committee Chairs and committee members for our nine committees-
- Social & Cultural
- Politics & Policy
- Public Relations
- Community Service
- Health & Wellness
- Personal & Professional Development
Please email me at
if you are looking at joining an National award-winning Executive Leadership Team or committee. You know the statistics in Milwaukee, the need is great for volunteers and service. The time is now for us as young professionals to showcase our plans, our actions and solutions through the Urban League Movement as we continue to empower communities and change lives. See you Thursday at our meeting and bring a friend to join this National award-winning chapter of the National Urban League Young Professionals!
Yours in the Movement,
Milwaukee Urban League Young Professionals

2016 Milwaukee Film Festival
Milwaukee Film Festival Black Lens Presents 9 Rides
Saturday September 24, 9:30pm
5906 W. Vilet Street, Milwaukee
MULYP is proud to be a 2016 community partner for the Milwaukee Film Festival Black Lens Program. We will support the film 9 Rides, which was shot entirely on an iPhone 6s (the first movie ever to do so!)This film portrays an unnamed Uber driver (a remarkable performance from Dorian Missick) who is checking in for the busiest day of the year, New Year's Eve. Over the course of the evening and his numerous fares, he'll witness couples falling in and out of love, belligerent police officers, and solo passengers; all of these brief interactions exacerbating his own growing anxiety in the face of recent life-changing news.
To support the festival and this particular film with us, join MULYP for the 9:30pm screening of 9 Rides on Saturday September 24. Discounted tickets to the film are ONLY $8 each when purchased through MULYP.
To reserve your ticket, email
with your name, telephone number, and the number of tickets you would like to reserve NO LATER THAN Monday September 19. Payment will be due in cash prior to the event. Tickets are limited and will sell out fast so reserve yours today!

Health and Wellness Spotlight
Young professionals have been asked to make their voices heard! The City of Milwaukee has recently launched a community health improvement campaign called MKE Elevate, a comprehensive effort to improve Milwaukee's health. MKE Elevate is a community-driven process supported by the mayor and health commissioner that engages residents in deciding Milwaukee's most pressing health issues.
Here are three ways to make your voice heard:
1. Submit your photos of what makes Milwaukee healthy or unhealthy.
Let your photos tell the story of how you see health in your neighborhood! Email up to five photos and your ZIP code to firstname.lastname@example.org. All submissions received by September 30th will be entered into a drawing to WIN A FITBIT
2. Take the priority issues survey.
This brief 12-question
will help inform the selection of priority issues that need to be addressed in order to improve the health and well-being of the Milwaukee community.
3. Provide feedback on the Community Health Assessment.
This assessment examines the health status and conditions that impact the Milwaukee community. Please refer the
for the details and feedback form.
