Good Luck, Lucas!

From Lucas: In September of 2017 I joined the Ujima team to help grow a dream into a reality. And in those three years, we have managed to bring to life so many exciting parts of the Ujima ecosystem. It has been an honor to work alongside the activists, educators, business owners, investors, and community leaders who have helped to bring Ujima to life over the last three years.


I will be transitioning out of my role as Ujima’s Fund Manager to pursue my master’s at Georgetown University and will be moving to D.C. in the fall. That being said, the Ujima Fund has an exciting chapter ahead. To each member of this Ujima community, I hope you stay in touch. I look forward to cheering Ujima on as a solidarity member :)
