*About the Organizations*

Building a People's Economy in Boston

*THE UJIMA PROJECT *is organizing neighbors, workers, business owners
and investors to create a new community-controlled economy in Boston. We
are challenging poverty and developing our communities by organizing our
savings, businesses and customers to grow local wealth and meet our own

Ujima is a Swahili word, and the celebrated Kwanzaa principle for
"collective work and responsibility." The Ujima Project demonstrates new
ways to invest, work, buy, own, and advocate. We believe that Another World
is Possible, and we are building it today!

*OLIO* is a worker-owned culinary collective, dedicated to sustainable
sourcing, workplace fairness & the celebration of food as culture. Olio is
proud to use food as a means to uplift their customers and build the
resilience of community. The worker-owners of Olio come from a wide range
of culinary backgrounds, ready to create a specially customized menu that
fits your budget and event needs. If you're looking for memorable food
that's interesting and flavorful, that puts your money back into the local
economy and is crafted by people who you know are being paid a living wage
- Olio is there.

*DUDLEY CAFE* hosts annual fundraisers for local organizations that work
towards uplifting the Roxbury community through the arts, culture,
technology, wellness, education or social justice. In light of recent
events, now more than ever is a time to come together as a community and
support each other. This year they will be hosting Boston Ujima Project for
their first annual fundraiser dinner in collaboration with Olio.
