UJIMA reminds us of our responsibility to work together to build and maintain our community. We see this principle manifested on a large scale as the Black Lives Matter movement grows. We also see this in our local community as we engage in community organizing and creating spaces specifically for us to uplift, support and educate one another. When we create after school programs, when we build re-entry programs, when we work together to feed our hungry, when we support or elders…that’s UJIMA! We have a responsibility to not only build these spaces but SUPPORT these spaces. Whenever you have the opportunity please support spaces and efforts that uplift our community!
