Criminal Justice

One of Ujamaa Place’s primary focuses with respect to its criminal justice programming is teaching the men about the criminal justice system, social justice advocacy, their rights and more, as well as empowering them to use their experience and voice to advocate for change in their community. Ujamaa Men recently advocated alongside 15Now for a $15 minimum wage.

The Ujamaa Men are frequently present at the State Capitol, City Hall, and in the community advocating on issues that impact them and the communities in which they live.

Ujamaa Men, who were enrolled at the time, had the opportunity to take Nonviolence365 Certification Education and Training in October 2017 facilitated by Bernice King, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s youngest daughter, and the entire training team from The King Center.
