and Survival Programs
The 2012 Oakland Freedom Summer Project brought volunteers from around the country. They teamed up with local activists and African community members to plant vegetable gardens, build programs such as the Biko Lumumba Free Lunch Program, and renovate thie historic Uhuru House black community center.
This project culminated with a Black Community Convention hosted by the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement.
The Uhuru Movement has built Uhuru House community centers that house programs for political, cultural and economic empowerment.
