Education and Outreach
Ujima is on the forefront of new training and outreach tools to reduce violence against and homicides of Black women. Ujima is a clearinghouse for research literature, webinars, national issue forums, regional trainings, community-specific roundtables, blogs, articles, and on-site technical assistance.
Ujima also works with other organizations to develop public service announcements, issue briefs, videos, monographs, and fact sheets.
The success of Ujima lies in its outreach to the community. Historically, the lack of outreach to the Black community by domestic violence service providers lends itself to the perception that these organizations aren’t able to meet the needs of this community, which couldn’t be further from the truth. Statistics show that the demographic that receives the greatest percentage of services from domestic violence organizations is Black females, proving the importance of strategic outreach through culturally specific programs.
