Ujima, Inc.: The National Center on Violence Against Women in the Black Community serves as a national, culturally-specific services issue resource center to provide support to and be a voice for the Black Community in response to domestic, sexual and community violence. Ujima was founded in response to a need for an active approach to ending domestic, sexual and community violence in the Black community. The name Ujima was derived from the third principle of Kwanzaa, and means Collective Work and Responsibility. As an organization, we understand the need to mobilize and heal our communities from the inside out. We utilize this principle to empower service providers, policy makers, advocates and the community-at-large to address the unique challenges faced by the Black Community as it relates to violence across a broad spectrum.
