Urban Specialists – #StandwithUS Power Movement

Urban Specialists™ is a nonprofit organization working to eliminate violence in Urban Culture.

As we look out across our nation’s landscape today, there is a growing concern about the crisis that seems to be ever-growing. At the same time, we believe that there is also a reservoir of hope that runs deep within the people that make our cities, states and nation great! It is because of that hope that we are convening The Heal America Tour, which will travel to various cities with one mission in mind, to revive hope and bring healing to those who seek to serve.

We reach into the depths of our communities to bring awareness to critical issues and provide sustainable solutions.

March 8, 2019 was a historic night at the Omni Dallas Hotel. Urban Specialists hosted The Frederick Douglass Gala, our first annual fundraising event to inspire, observe, and appreciate urban excellence. A diverse audience of wealthy business owners, strong community leaders, OGs, and saints of God celebrated the perfect potential in each one of us. We enjoyed and highlighted at-promise youth from the Frederick Douglass Society, while recognizing true OGs that stand with US to empower youth and stop senseless violence.
