THE HOUSE OF UMOJA, INC.: APPROACHING FORTY AND “THINK GREEN PEACE”

PHILADELPHIA, PA (U.S.A.) – 17 MARCH 2008 –-- Since its founding in 1968 by Queen Mother Falaka Fattah and her husband Mr. David Fattah, the House Of Umoja, Inc.has positively shaped the minds and souls of approximately 3,000 young men; successfully negotiated a peace pact among leaders of gangs in Philadelphia in 1974 which brought to an end bloody and deadly gang conflicts that had plagued the nation’s fourth largest city; and rekindled community spirit and energized a public school system in its leadership and organizing role for the 2007 Million Father March in the City of Philadelphia as it moves children in the City of Philadelphia to commit to nonviolence by signing the Imani Pledge.

As it approaches its 40th anniversary, the House Of Umoja, Inc. continues to create key “pieces of the puzzle” to not only positively shaping the minds and souls of the City’s youth but also beautifying and empowering the neighborhoods in which they reside by “Think Green Peace”.

The House Of Umoja, Inc.’s “Think Green Peace” Campaign -- which consists of several components that include, but are not limited to, transforming vacant lots into gardens that are abloom with vegetables and flowers; and engaging the youths, adults, and business community in the task of preparing the vacant lots for planting in the Carroll Park section of West Philadelphia -- will culminate with the First Philadelphia Collard Green Cultural Festival For 2008 which is scheduled to occur in July 2008.

“The House Of Umoja, Inc.’s ‘Think Green Peace’ Campaign is creating key ‘pieces of the puzzle’ to beautifying our community, educating our young about our environment, and moving our community to self-sufficiency,” Queen Mother Falaka Fattah explained.

So, how can you get involved in the House Of Umoja, Inc.’s “Think Green Peace” Campaign?
