The Los Angeles Urban League Guild (Guild/LAULG) was formed in 1952 with 10 founding ladies.  It included women with experience and knowledge of business, health and welfare, education and social-civic organizations.  Florence Vaughn served as the Guild’s first president.  It is a member of the National Council of Urban League Guilds.

Members of the Guild still include experienced and knowledgeable women and men in business, health and welfare, education and social-civic organizations. 

The Guild's Beginning

 

 

Mollie Moon (July 21, 1912 – June 22, 1990) was the founder and president

of the National Urban League Guild, the fundraising branch of the National

Urban League. She served as president of the Guild for almost 50 years,

from its founding until her death.

 

Moon served as secretary to the Board of Trustees of the National Urban

League. She founded the National Urban League Guild  in order to raise

funds in support of the League's racial equality programs.  Lester B. Granger,

then director of the Urban League, challenged Moon personally to help the

league become 'financially stable.' At first an informal group, it eventually

developed bylaws and held elections, with Moon serving as president until

her death 1990. The Guild's most well-known fundraising event was its

annual Beaux-Arts Ball, a charity gala with a different theme each year.

 

Through her efforts with the Urban League Guild and the Urban League,

Mollie Moon worked to improve race relations in New York City and in the

United States at large. Moon was an innovative fundraiser whose creative

ideas and projects helped to support the Urban League and to raise public

awareness about its programs.
