Arts & Cultural Organizing

Imagination is an essential piece of our effort to build the new world. Cultural workers are economy builders. With that understanding we strive to provide artists with a space to organize and advocate on behalf of themselves and their neighbors.

Black Mass Coalition

The Black Mass Coalition is a group of statewide leaders, including Ujima, from grassroots organizations to institutional entities, that developed a list of actionable, tangible items for four groups -- the private sector, nonprofits, philanthropic organizations, and government -- to commit and follow through on in order to prove that their statement, "Black Lives Matter!," is more than words but a vision of a world they want to make true with us.

Endorsement Policy

Boston Ujima Project has crafted an endorsement policy to align with our commitment to being member-led. There are three opportunities for Ujima members to review and weigh in on endorsement requests:

  1. Every 1st Wednesday | #CoDirect: on the first Wednesday of the month, we give members an opportunity to provide input through deeper organizational updates and space for discussion. As this happens on a monthly basis, endorsement requests that come to us with a minimum of 3 weeks' notice are ideal, however, we can accommodate requests with up to 24hrs notice. We encourage you to be present at #Co-Direct to present alongside staff, as well as answer any questions or concerns.

  2. Every 2nd Wednesday | Endorsement Request Textline: Through the use of our texting service, members now have the ability to review and respond to requests via phone.

  3. Every 4th Wednesday | Staff WIRE Newsletter: In our monthly Staff WIRE newsletter, we give members a final opportunity to give their feedback on any requests.

 

Please note our timeline above to time your requests to us accordingly. Ujima will make a decision regarding your endorsement request after either steps 1&2 or 2&3 have been completed. If you have an endorsement request, please send it to comms[at]ujimaboston.com.

 

We will continue to make further refinements to our process. ​In the meantime, we're happy to support campaigns by spreading the word via our newsletters and social media. Thank you.
