Umoja will be hosting weekly meetings and you are all invited. The 1st and 3rd Wednesdays will be our structured meetings where we discuss Black and African-American historical, current, and personally events to engage in culturally relevant learning. The 2nd and 4th Wednesdays will serve as what we call "The Porch". This is a learning environment that is open, respectful and playful. The porch can often be candid and sometimes even painful, but the Umoja family is there to help you deal with the pain you are dealing with.
