The Ujima Friends Peace Center
The Ujima Friends Peace Center is a worship community consisting primarily of Friends of African Descent. It is located at 17th Street and Lehigh Avenue in the heart of the African-American community in North Philadelphia. It grew out of the commitment made by the Fellowship of Friends of African Descent in 2016 to address the causes and consequences of state sanctioned violence on a local level. (See the Fellowship Minute regarding State Sanctioned Violence.)The Center shares the Fellowship’s mission.
The work of the Ujima Friends Peace Center is to reduce violence and provide a safe haven with educational, cultural and recreational opportunities for adults and young people.
