Who We Are
There is a world of abundance, solidarity, and hope waiting to burst through the cracks in the surface of our city’s economy...
Together we can make that world thrive.
Ujima was born from a shared desire for real solutions to racial wealth inequality, poverty, unemployment, and displacement in our neighborhoods.
The Boston Ujima Project is a democratic, member-run organization building cooperative economic infrastructure in Boston, with a mission to return wealth to working-class communities of color.
We believe that change won’t happen if we continue to work in silos. The challenges facing our communities — gentrification, poverty, homelessness, lack of food access, unemployment, and lack of healthcare — are all interconnected. We need a solution that is equally complex.
