GTUL—a decade of service


In October 1994, a group of citizens campaigned to bring an Urban League affiliate to Toledo. That effort was rewarded in August 1996 when the National Urban League (NUL) established the Greater Toledo Urban League (GTUL).


Johnny Mickler arrived in town in August 1997 to become its first president. Mickler, now a 20-year veteran with NUL, had spent the previous four years in a similar position in Madison, WI.

Johnny Mickler and Paul Hubbard of GTUL


Mickler is assisted by a dedicated staff and a board of directors and an executive committee that reads like a Who’s Who of distinguished Toledoans, including: Paul Hubbard, who was instrumental in obtaining the affiliate. At that time, Hubbard was economic development director for the City of Toledo.


In celebration, GTUL will host its 10th annual banquet on March 22, 2007 at the Wynham Hotel in downtown Toledo. Its theme is: “A Decade of Staying the Course.”


Founded in 1910, the NUL is a nonprofit social service, civil rights organization, headquartered in New York City, with 114 affiliates in 34 states and DC. Its mission is to assist African-Americans in the achievement of social and economic equality through advocacy, bridge building, program services, and research. For more information call 419-243-3343 or visit: www.gtul.org.
