Join us in celebrating inclusion, diversity, and empowerment in the Chattanooga community!

For 37 years, EOD has recognized local, corporate and individual leaders who have championed the principles of equal opportunity and social justice. This event represents the essence of the work that the Urban League of Greater Chattanooga does each day to foster economic empowerment — educating and equipping individuals and families with the resources needed to improve their quality of life. Last year, more than 14,000 men, women and children were empowered through a combination of these services. Proceeds from this event provide critical support for all of our programs and will ensure we can continue to empower our community.
