Ujamaa Place Hosting Its Mid-Year Celebration Day 2018 With Three Main Events At Hallie Q Brown Community Center
Celebration starts with a "Community Information Fair" from 11am – 3pm, followed by a meet and greet with new COO, Lee Buckley at 4pm – 5:30 immediately followed by the mid-year awards celebration.
The Ujamaa Place "Community Information Fair" will become a regular event throughout the Twin Cities starting with the kick off at Hallie Q. Brown Recreation Center on June 14th, located at 270 N. Kent St., St. Paul, MN. 55102.
Ujamaa Place serves primarily African American men, aged 18-30, who face systemic barriers that place roadblocks in the way of gaining livable wage employment and stable housing. "We often hear from Ujamaa men that the hardest step is the first step through the door to ask for help," said COO Lee Buckley. Mrs. Buckley explained: "one of the ways the community can help is to offer to drive a young man to and from the information fair at Hallie Q. Brown on June 14th, as transportation is a critical need for this marginalized population that most often is written-off by society. Ujamaa Place is a brotherhood that supports and loves one another."
Ujamaa Place is excited for the community to meet its new Chief Operating Officer, Lee Buckley from 4pm – 5:30pm with light refreshments served, immediately followed by an awards presentation to "celebrate every step forward" for Ujamaa Place Men.
