UJAMAA purposely leads and supports initiatives that promote equitable and sustainable community development for all residents of the Claiborne Corridor, with the intention of mitigating the displacement of our indigenous residents in the face of burgeoning development and gentrification. Taking up the mantle carried by our community elders, we recognize the need to protect and uplift our established resident-defined priorities:

  • Economic Opportunity 
  • Housing Affordability 
  • Cultural Preservation
  • Transportation Choice & Access
  • Environmental Sustainability & Innovation 
  • Safe & Healthy Neighborhoods
