UMOJA IMPACT WEEK

Growing Peace

The House of Umoja celebrates its 53rd Anniversary in commUNITY!


One Week • 4 Events • 5 Aligned Approaches to Peace usher in a new season of intentional peace on the foundation of Family, Faith, and Culture.


"The family is the problem and the family is the solution." -Queen Mother Falaka Fattah


The 2021 UMOJA IMPACT WEEK brings us back to commUNITY. The pandemic has sent us a stark reminder of the value and intangible need of companionship, family, and community. Truly, no man is an island. At the same time, the pandemic has intensified the impact of isolation, poverty, discrimination, the lack of family structures, and violence on us individually and communally.


“A child who is not embraced by the village will burn it down to feel its warmth.” -African Proverb

Our children, especially our Black and Brown males, are being impacted by violence at an alarming rate. Queen Mother Falaka Fattah (Mom), our Co-Founder and Executive Director, is redirecting the House of Umoja back to its legacy and roots of "what worked." From the foundational three-legged stool of Family, Faith, and Culture, we move in partnership with our youth and the "kinship community." Living with listening ears, in partnership with the community, we bring together these initiatives during Umoja Impact Week:

THE MILLION FATHER MARCH • FATHERS LEAD TO READ • THE FATTAH YOUTH PEACE CORP • THE GREEN PEACE GARDEN • THE MARCUS GARVEY CULTURAL RESOURCE CENTER
