RESTORE

YUMYODA is dedicated to fostering a sense of community rooted in Restorative Justice. By building the scale and power of the solidarity economy movement in Black, Indigenous, and working class communities throughout New York City, we aspire to support a just transition from an extractive to a regenerative economy, where healing and reconciliation are at the core of our collective growth.

CIRCULATE

CIRCULATE

At YUMYODA, our vision of wealth encompasses more than just financial gain. It is a fundamental mission of our organization to embrace Solidarity Economics, re-distributing and circulating wealth from capitalists to disadvantaged communities. We serve the coalitions against colonialism and the lineage that followed, seeking to empower communities and ensure equitable access to resources, prosperity, and collective well-being.

ABOLISH

ABOLISH

YUMYODA believes that the ability to redefine and restore wealth is one of the best ways to ensure that resources such as health care, transportation, and affordable housing are accessible to everyone. As an organization committed to Abolition, we address the underlying social issues that divide our siblings and seek to dismantle oppressive systems, fostering an abundant society where all individuals can thrive, regardless of background or identity.

Our Story

Our goal is to create a space that celebrates uniqueness, self-expression, and group action, drawing inspiration from the vibrant energy and tenacity of street culture. We believe in the power of embracing one’s authentic self and using creativity as a catalyst for positive change.
