Blue Hill Corridor Neighborhood & Business to Business Assembly

When: June 09, 11:00 AM - 3:00 AM
Where: 31 Erie St., Dorchester, MA
Ages allowed: All Ages
Cost: Free

Ujima Project is hosting its first business-to-business assembly and its second neighborhood assembly at our upcoming Blue Hill Corridor Neighborhood and Business-to-Business Assembly Saturday, June 9th, Erie-Ellington Community Center, 11:00AM . We are hosting this assembly in partnership with the Blue Hill Corridor Planning Commission (BHCPC), an initiative of the Black Economic Justice Institute (BEJI).

The Blue Hill Corridor Assembly will be an opportunity for businesses and neighbors to come together to set collective priorities for economic development in the Blue Hill Corridor. Neighbors will be invited to share needs and desires for the local economy. Business owners will have a chance to develop business facing investment ideas that fulfill purchasing needs. As a community, we will be forming a shared plan for pooling our ideas and resources to create the Blue Hill Corridor economy we all dream about. This assembly will directly shape the creation of Ujima’s 2018-2019 investment plan.

The Boston Ujima Project is a member organization working to build a people’s economy in Boston. Ujima is using a variety of innovative strategies, including a democratically governed community loan fund, to return wealth and power to working class communities of color.
