Yours, Mine & Ours Podcast

Ujima has teamed up with the Moonlighters' Club and Ujima's Business Support Member Team to produce a new podcast: Yours, Mine, and Ours! Our podcast spotlights the businesses of Ujima's Good Business Alliance, created for the community, by the community, with a special emphasis on Ujima's good business standards.

 

Our grassroots partners provide political leadership and root our work in ongoing struggles for housing justice, labor rights, youth empowerment, environmental justice, and more. Their expertise and membership bodies help to guide our process of creating community-led standards and investment plans for our local economy. Visit our Organize page for more information on how to support our grassroots parners.

Email nia_at_ujimaboston.com to learn about becoming a grassroots partner.
