Description

Dreaming Wild: Boston Ujima Project Inaugural General Assembly

Friday, September 8th - Saturday, September 9th

Over the last 2 years, over 500 residents have participated in Ujima events and workshops to help build a shared vision for a People's Economy in Boston. We've listened and learned together, and are happy to invite you to to our Inaguaral General Assembly to officially launch the Ujima Project.

At our inaugural General Assembly, we will celebrate Ujima's new members, the governing body who will vote on allocating resources to Boston's local artists and and small businesses, and ratify Ujima's bylaws, interim community standards, and capital fund investment terms. These decisions will help advance our vision for a community controlled economy in Boston's working class communities of color
