Updates from our Executive Director

Dear Ujima, Inc. Community,

The past few weeks have been a huge challenge for our entire community. Even though our entire team continues to work remotely, our mission to support the Black community remains consistent. As information about COVID-19 continues to develop, we will provide you with timely updates on resources and assistance.

Updated Precautionary Measure for Our Staff

Our management team and staff continue to promote social distancing to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. Ujima staff will work remotely through Friday, May 1, 2020. Please note, that our remote date may be extended based on the recommendations presented by our local government. We are still available to answer any questions, concerns, or requests. If you need to contact one of our staff members, please e-mail us at ujimainfo@ujimacommunity.org.

Ujima, Inc. Outreach and Community Awareness

As a national resource center, it is important that we provide culturally relevant information that supports you! Ujima, Inc. has launched it’s COVID-19 Resource page, located on our website at www.ujimacommunity.org/covid-19. This page will include updates and resources for our community during this difficult time. This page will be updated as new information becomes available.

In addition to the resources provided on our website, please continue to:

  • Follow the guidelines and recommendations set by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
  • If you are able to stay home, please do so and remember to practice social distancing when necessary.
  • Continue to wash your hands with soap and warm water as often as possible and keep your hands away from your face.
  • Lastly, if you are feeling sick, please stay home and contact your doctor for assistance.

We understand how much this “new normal” has disrupted our daily lives, but keep in mind this is not permanent. By following the recommendations of federal, state, and local governmental agencies, we as a community can help “flatten the curve” and save lives. We will continue to monitor the situation and send updates as they become available.

Take care,

Karma Cottman
Executive Director, Ujima, Inc.
