It's Always Better in the West!!
Umu Igbo Unite- Los Angeles Chapter ("UIU-LA"), chartered in April 2017 is a local chapter of the national Umu Igbo Unite organization, and the first chapter on the west coast. Umu Igbo Unite is a U.S.-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that consists of a wide range of professionals and college students of Nigerian Igbo heritage who reside in the United States. UIU-LA was created to bring Igbo youths and professionals together, establish a sense of community and educate members about the rich Igbo culture, while giving back to local communities and ensuring the younger Igbo generation in LA have role models to emulate. In a short amount of time, we are now the largest network of young Nigerian Igbo professionals in the LA area. In 2017, the Nigerian American Public Affairs Commission honored UIU-LA with an award of cultural excellence.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“Since the inception of Umu Igbo Unite Los Angeles, it’s been an array of exceptional experiences- ranging from professional workshops and networking to social educative gatherings of like minds. This organization connected me to fellow Nigerians with hunger to succeed in different career paths. UIULA has also given me an opportunity to learn more about the Igbo Culture and our Motherland (Nigeria).”
