Boston Ujima Project
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.
