State of Arizona Reports
Modeled after the National Urban League's State of Black America, the State of Arizona reports highlight issues facing Arizona's diverse populations, with ideas for solving these concerns. The publications reflect the data collection of the research team and are designed to inform policy makers and promote growth in the Arizona region.
The African-American community has played a historically significant role in the advancement of Arizona and our region. The future success of our state relies on our ability to strengthen our communities and empower them to meet and exceed their vast potential. This project between the community and the University was undertaken to help advance a better understanding of the changing dynamics of Arizona’s African-American population and the critical issues that require our collective attention in terms of education, health care, the economy, culture and leadership.
