About this Event

Doors at 4:30pm. Event starts at 5:00pm.

Please join the WAITLIST! If a ticket becomes available, you will be contacted automatically. No further action is required.

If we do not contact you, please feel free to come to the Bolling Building and we will be trying our best to get everyone in the door!

On Sunday, September 22nd we will welcome three visionary Black mayors from across the country - Mayor Melvin Carter (St Paul, MN), Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba (Jackson, MS), and Mayor Michael Tubbs (Stockton, CA) - to Boston for a learning exchange with Boston Ujima Project, The Workers Lab, and our broader community.

These mayors - among the youngest and most progressive in the country - have advanced bold policy solutions addressing many of the challenges impacting working class communities of color, including wealth inequality, housing, health, education, and criminalization.

Join us for a panel and breakout discussion about the intersection of politics and worker power with Boston Ujima Project, the Workers Lab, and Mayors Lumumba, Tubbs, and Carter. How can our cities shift political and economic power directly into the hands of community members, and create cooperative economies that support the wellbeing of our people and our planet? What can we make happen when our people are in power? How can our communities and businesses prepare to govern ourselves?

We hope you will join us for this incredible opportunity. We are prioritizing attendance and participation of working class Black, brown, indigenous, and communities of color.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Children’s activities may be available upon request. Please email info@ujimaboston.com to get confirmation if you would like to bring your child or children and we will follow up with you.
