Overview

Mission Statement

UMN was founded by and is run by people of African descent committed to fully engaging communities of color in our democracy. Our mission is to ensure that trained, committed grassroots leaders of color effectively organize on issues of concern in their communities, their regions, and the nation. Our vision is to create a unifying force to address the threats to our civil liberties and to end discriminatory policies and practices that limit our access to political, economic and social power.

Background Statement

Established in 2002, UMN is a membership organization working to ensure the collective power of people of color is heard and felt. Our communities are too often on the receiving end of legislation, public policies, and practices that directly and repeatedly limit access to economic opportunity and social justice.

Without knowledge of the systems at play, we are unprepared to confront these policies. Our programs focus on organizing for social and institutional change by developing skilled organizers and new leaders. The bottom line on any issue is civic engagement of those in our community who have traditionally been excluded.

Our programs are constituent driven and holistic:

·        Participants in our trainings have become active in their communities as emerging leaders. 

·        Through coalitions, we have successfully brought together broad interests around issues that affect communities of color -- strengthening the bridges between labor, government, business, and non-profits.

CEO Statement

Dear friends,

Making democracy work, making it more inclusive, is the job of the Union of Minority Neighborhoods, our volunteers and our coalitions.

We are having a real discussion on race and class using the busing/desegregation crisis of 1974 that still defines and hurts Boston.  Our project, leading to a truth process, is allowing all affected communities, across race and class, to come together to make Boston a more equitable city. No one else is addressing the painful legacy of education in Boston using powerful reconciliation models from around the world. 

 
We continue to be effective advocates for justice as we continue to provide representation and counseling to those seeking to seal their criminal records, giving  presentations to over 100 organizations, colleges, government agencies, affected constituencies and staff throughout Massachusetts.  Our staff members have developed such expertise on Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) laws and policies, they now train lawyers and law students on regulations.

We make effective use of collaborations, through the universities working with us on research or lawyers helping us to plan legal solutions to problems or nonprofits that are our allies in organizing for equity in education and economic power.  Our fight for equity in education includes working with disabilities organizations to try to change an education system that stigmatizes Black children, especially our boys.  

We will continue to organize and train parents in their struggles for quality public school education.  We will continue to bring together immigrant communities with the African-American community to organize around common issues.  Our Institute of Neighborhood Development will continue to provide training and skills to people of color interested in becoming activists. 

Our Howard Rye Institute is creating skilled leaders of color.

UMN succeeds, thanks to the support of friends, allies and the people we serve.  We welcome your support, knowing full well that only working together can ensure success for us all. 

Peace,

Horace Small

 


Board Chair Statement

Dear friends,

As chair of the board of directors, I can honestly say that we are an active and passionate board that works closely with UMN’s staff. We work on programs, show up at hearings, set policy, raise funds.  Why?  Because we know UMN makes a difference in the lives of people of color, the poor and working class.  And because our history shows that by working together we can make real change.  UMN delivers quality programs helping Massachusetts residents tap into resources that make tremendous difference in their lives and communities.  Programs are well targeted to residents seeking to improve cross-racial dialogues, parents advocating for resources for their children, activists who want better schools, individuals overcoming the stigma of a criminal record and anyone seeking to become civically engaged.

We do our work realizing that the day-to-day realities and opportunities for most people of color are still grim, although many from our community have made tremendous strides on the local and national political landscape in recent years.  Our intent is to see significant improvements in societal problems that still limit opportunities and aspirations in our communities.

As optimists, we wholeheartedly believe in UMN’s strong record of engaging budding and established activists, of working in coalition.  Consider UMN to make an impact through grassroots organizing by the most excluded in our democracy.  In turn, we on the board of directors commit to ensuring you achieve a powerful impact when you entrust UMN with your donation.

Sincerely,

Althea Roach Thomas, Chair

Board of Directors

Boston Busing/Desegregation Project (BBDP)

In attempts to organize African-American parents to become more engaged in the Boston Public School System, UMN encountered cynicism and distrust towards the educational system. Much of the energy, pain and anger expressed were around Boston school desegregation and busing.

Busing/desegregation in Boston was unarguably a watershed moment in the city’s history. The violence that met desegregation here was a shock to the nation as it clashed with Boston’s image and identity as a liberal-minded city.

The goal of our initiative is to expand and support communities committed to facilitating Boston’s transition to a more equitable and just public school system.  BBDP’s framework focuses on three key areas: Truth telling, Learning from the truth, and making Change based on the new knowledge shared.

Our core values are centered on the following principles:

  •  Truth
  • Lifting up voices and tapping the wisdoms of those often marginalized.
  • Using the past to understand the present.
  • Belief in transformation through learning.
  • Community as the native soil of the human spirit.
  • Acknowledging and learning from the power and beauty of diverse cultures to shape our shared culture.
  • Supporting new generations to take leadership in order to create a better world.

Howard Rye Institute

The Howard Rye Institute is a 9-month intensive training initiative building tomorrow’s leaders of African descent.

HRI teaches young people of African descent to be community leaders, activists and organizers to advocate for themselves and their community.

HRI fellows learn the importance of history and how it relates to issues communities face today; develop an understanding of how institutions work and the politics behind them; develop the political and economic thinking that goes into issues and systems impacting our community.

In developing the next generation of civic and political leaders, HRI uses experts and prominent leaders from universities, unions, government, business and nonprofits as trainers, speakers and mentors.

Budget  $50,000.00
Category  Civil Rights, Social Action & Advocacy, General/Other Civil Rights, Social Action & Advocacy, General/Other
Population Served Blacks, African Heritage College Aged (18-26 years) Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent
Program Short-Term Success  By the end of the HRI session, Fellows will have deepened their skills and knowledge, have developed a network of other Boston-based leaders, and have acquired a committed mentor to offer advice and guidance as they continue on their career or education path.
Program Long-Term Success  Long-term success for HRI would be that Black (US-born and otherwise) neighborhoods in Boston are represented and organized by a skilled and well-organized group of leaders who have successfully helped create powerful, self-sufficient communities. 
Program Success Monitored By  Internal program evaluations and feedback from past and current program Fellows
Examples of Program Success  HRI Fellows successfully lobbied Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker to re-affirm his, and the State's, commitment to the Office of Access and Opportunity.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

UMN continues to work closely with our board on our fundraising objectives. Board members have been helping us identify ways to diversify our funding base, strengthen our programs and draw the media's attention to our work. As a result, our board members have now introduced us to a new group of smaller donors, whom are making a significant difference in helping us remain independent and self-sufficient. Several donors have begun o open up their networks to UMN through small house parties.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
