The National Urban League (NUL) and Experian North America announced the launch of a new partnership to further the mission of financial inclusion and empowerment. NUL President and CEO Marc H. Morial and Experian North America Chief Executive Officer Craig Boundy shared the news during the opening day of National Urban League’s first all-virtual conference.

Through the partnership, Experian is providing NUL Young Professionals and those enrolled in one of 12 Urban League Entrepreneurship Centers with free access to their Experian consumer credit report and FICO Score, along with the ability to potentially increase their credit scores instantly with Experian Boost. Experian will also be offering small business tools, services, and educational content.

The partnership is part of Experian’s United for Financial Health initiative, which aims to empower and protect vulnerable consumers to improve their financial health through education and action.
