About Us

THE BOSTON UJIMA PROJECT is organizing 

neighbors, workers, business owners and 

investors to create a new community 

controlled economy in Greater Boston.

We are challenging poverty and developing 

our communities by organizing our savings, businesses and customers to grow local

wealth and meet our own needs.

UJIMA (oo-JEE-mah) is a Swahili word, and the celebrated Kwanzaa principle for "collective work and responsibility". Ujima inspires us to take responsibility for our communities, to see our neighbor's problems as our own, and to build collective power to solve them together.

The Ujima Project demonstrates new ways to invest, work, buy, own, and advocate.
