We are growing a network of faith organizations as part of the Boston Ujima Project, which organizes neighbors, workers, business owners and investors to bring a community-controlled Boston-based economy to fruition.
We are on our way! And you are the most important part of the equity-equation! Whether you came to the first kick-off event in Nov 2018, or are engaging for the first time with us, or anywhere in between, we urge you to engage with us as a broader body of faith communities. We gather to encourage making commitments to the equitable distribution of decision-making power and resources in our city, and to grow and be joyful together, in pursuit of racial and economic justice. All are welcome,including but not limited to members, staff and leaders of congregations and faith organizations.
- When: Thursday, November 21st, 6-8pm
- Where: Jamaica Plain Cohousing, 65 Cornwall St., Boston
- Dinner provided.
- RSVP today via Eventbrite
- Spread the word via Facebook to folks in your or other organizations/congregations who you want to be part of Ujima’s work!
- Co-hosted by Kavod, a community of young adults committed to local social justice organizing and meaningful Jewish practice.
- Feel free to reach out to Nadav at email@example.com or Seona at firstname.lastname@example.org
What to expect:
At this event, we will learn from and celebrate how some faith communities have been engaging with Ujima, including over $80,000 of direct investment into the Ujima Investment Fund, and over $15,000 (and counting) purchased of goods and services from the Ujima Business Alliance businesses! You did this, and we can continue to do so much more together!
If you have made purchases with Ujima’s businesses or partners, please record them on this Google Form. See our list of partners and businesses at www.UjimaBoston.com.
This will also be the space to meet some of the Ujima business owners, and familiarize and network with the other efforts within the Ujima ecosystem.
And what would be a faith communities meeting if we didn’t have a little fun and laughter together, to foster goodwill and ignite collaboration among the faith communities represented amongst us.
It’s a new year – what better time than now to turn the page and commit to improving self-care and exploring new meaning after trauma and loss? Come and be with us on Thursday 1/17 at 6 pm at The Cory Johnson Program for Post-Traumatic Healing, Roxbury Presbyterian Church, 328 Warren St, Roxbury.
We will learn about how our spiritual, individual and collective, lives are at the center of both our desire and response for healing.
Dinner starts at 6 pm, program at 7 pm. Child Care provided. No cost.
You are invited to “CAN WE TALK?” , a monthly conversation around trauma & loss, Thursday 3/29/18 starting with dinner at 6 pm and then moving into the conversation at 7 pm.
This is for everyone and anyone who is struggling with loss, trauma, and/or grief. This evening will hopefully offer safe space and connection within community. There is no charge – and we start with dinner. There is even childcare available. There is NO requirement to share, but if someone chooses to share, they speak for 3-5 minutes. We also have artistic expression throughout the evening which includes music and dance.
Please consider coming and share this invitation with anyone you think might benefit. Everyone is welcome – all you need to do is show up!
