Boston Ujima Project

Boston Ujima Project is a cooperative business, arts and investment ecosystem, built by and for Boston’s working class Black, Indigenous and communities of color. Ujima (oo-JEE-mah) is a Swahili word, 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. Through Ujima, we are fostering a new economy based on democracy, sustainability and justice.”
