Support Independent Black Political Action

The Ujima People’s Progress Party (UPP) is a movement organized to build a people’s party! We are independent and we are grassroots!

We are anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-colonialist, anti-sexist and support self-determination, worker self-organization and radical trade unionism. We do not receive support from corporations, grants or wealthy backers. The UPP is a Black working class-led mass party – organizing to build both a community based network of organizers, activists, students, union members and concerned citizens as well as a statewide electoral party that support candidates who fight for social and economic justice for working class people!

We need your support to achieve our mission! We call on the community to help the party as either active or contributing members, and to also help start chapters in every county of the state. We need to create a network in every community that is willing to work to change the issues that confront our community and working people!
