My name is Ahjamu Umi. Ahjamu is Yoruba (West African) for "He who fights for what he wants!" Umi is Yao for Life giver. I have a Masters degree in Economics from Sacrificial State...Oops! I mean Sacramento State University.
I have spent the last three decades as a committed organizer within the All African People's Revolutionary Party (A-APRP). The A-APRP is an independent, Pan-African political party based in Africa. Our work is organizing work which means you won't hear much about it on social media and you definitely won't hear about it in the capitalist media. If you are on the ground in African communities across the world, then you will come to understand our impact. I have organized for the A-APRP in several states in Africa, Europe, the Caribbean, Canada, and throughout the U.S. I am available to present, train, and help you develop effective organizing techniques in your area. Some of the topics for workshops and training sessions are:
1. Organizing effective communities that don't need/use police.
2. Organizing self defense and building safety for oppressed communities
3. Building organizations that fight white supremacy, patriarchy, and all oppression
4. Understanding Pan-African organizing
5. Scientific Socialism seminar/workshop
6. American Identity = white supremacy seminar/workshop
7. Building organic security within your communities
8. Conflict de-escalation and Protecting Yourselves
9. How to start an organization in your area
10.Writing as a tool for Liberation. Culture as a Weapon for the Oppressed
11.Taking care of Ourselves while Maintaining Our Resistance
12.Workshops for Men on how Not to be Cowards and Respect Women/Communities
13.Learning how to work through contradictions in your organizations
