Based in New Orleans, Ubuntu Village is a community organization that advances social, economic, and transformational justice for children and communities. In June, Ernest Johnson, co-founder and Director of Ubuntu Village and member of the Equal Voice Action Board and Family Advisor Community, wrote about Ubuntu Village’s “Show Your Love” campaign to stand up against hate and divisiveness and “show our neighbors and our communities that we care.” Watch the video to see how members of the New Orleans community are showing their love, supporting their neighbors, and building a stronger, more inclusive community.
The mission of Ubuntu Village is to provide programming that delivers social, economic, and transformational justice to children and communities. Ubuntu works primarily with youth who are involved in the criminal justice system and their families. Through tackling issues like juvenile justice, mass incarceration, racism, unemployment, trauma, joblessness, individualism, and divisiveness, Ubuntu works towards more just and equitable solutions that enable people confronted with multiple oppressions to overcome them in unity.
