Our 
Story

The goal of the DC Urban Debate League is to provide speech and debate opportunities to all students in the DC Metro Area regardless of socio-economic, or racial background. To do this, we need your help.

What sets us apart from other Urban Debate Leagues? 

We are offering Public Forum Debate and hold tournaments while providing coaching to students in the area
 

 

Donors like you keep participation in all of our tournaments at a low cost, buys food and trophies for our students, allows them to travel to Qatar, California, Alabama, New York, YALE, UPENN, HARVARD, and supports the Summer Debate Institute. 

Our debaters experience speech and debate in order to break barriers and exceed expectations to enter competitive colleges and 4-year Universities. 

 

DCUDL implements a travel team that provides students from schools without formal debate programs the opportunity to attend tournaments on the national debate circuit.  But now everything is online, so we are raising the bar by competing in more tournaments than ever!

Thank you!
