Ujima: The National Center on Violence Against Women in the Black Community
(1-844) 77-UJIMA (1-844-778-5462)
Ujima serves as a resource center for survivors of violence and their families and friends. Through Ujima, survivors are able to tap into a network of culturally-specific programs and services that meet the unique and varying needs of the Black community. Ujima acts as a bridge to reduce barriers to services best able to meet the needs of the Black community. Ujima is currently developing a resource guide of culturally-specific organizations serving Black women survivors of violence. This guide will be readily accessible to survivors of violence and their families, in addition to local organizations offering culturally-specific services.
