The Union of Minority Neighborhoods (UMN) is committed to fully engaging communities of color as active participants in our democracy. UMN trains, organizes and empowers people of color to effectively access many of the resources that make a difference in people’s lives – from the Commonwealth’s schools, to its workplaces, to its financial institutions, to its voting booths. UMN is working to ensure the collective power as people of color is heard and felt. UMN’s programs include:

Leadership Training: A workshop series for activists at the Institute for Neighborhood Leadership and in-depth civic training for young adults of African descent through the Howard Rye Institute. Geared toward men of African descent, between the ages of 20 and 35.
