Party for a Solidarity Economy: A Fundraiser for the Boston Ujima Project

March 15, 2018 @ 6:00 PM

Resource Generation Boston, Fresh Pond Capital, and the Boston Ujima Project are coming together to host a fundraiser to support Ujima's vision for a solidarity economy in Boston.

Boston Ujima Project believes that there is a world of hope, abundance, and solidarity waiting to burst through the cracks in the surface of our city’s economy. We invite you and your friends & family to help us bring this world to life!

Boston Ujima Project is bringing together business owners, neighbors, grassroots organizations, investors, and philanthropists to create a community-controlled economy in Boston, and to return wealth to working class communities of color.

While Ujima’s vision is centered around a democratic investment fund, the organization needs more than investment dollars to build the structure and culture that will make this vision possible. As Ujima prepares to launch a fund in the Spring, your financial contributions will be essential in empowering Ujima to pay a team of staff, meet technological needs, and hold educational and cultural events. Your support will enable us to host the Neighborhood Assemblies that will guide our democratic investment process, and build a robust community ready to transform the way we invest in each other.
