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.

Mission

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.
