Training and Technical Assistance
Ujima works to increase the capacity of Family Violence Prevention and Services Act grantees, domestic violence coalitions and networks, domestic violence programs, local, state, and federal government agencies, community-based programs, practitioners, researchers; and policymakers regarding family, domestic, and dating violence in the Black community. Ujima provides ongoing technical assistance to these groups both on-site and virtually, via telephone and e-mail.
There is currently a shortage of targeted, culturally-specific services for Black survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Ujima identifies and provides trainings on subject areas that are in high demand as a means to increase services for and to this diverse group of people. Remaining true to the principals of Ujima, trainings are designed by and for the communities they serve.
Ujima also culturally-specific regional trainings across the country to develop a learning community and offer opportunities to build peer-mentoring relationships in local communities.
Training topics include, but are not limited to:
- Engaging Men and Boys
- Addressing DV/SA at Historically Black Colleges and Universities
- Addressing DV/SA in the Immigrant Community
- Bystander Intervention
- Serving the LGBT Community
