Ubuntu comes from the  Bantu language meaning “I am because we are.”

Mission:  To foster healing and thriving from the harm done by racial trauma.

Vision: To create an enduring legacy of hopefulness and wholeness that brings purpose and thriving.

Ubuntu House is an initiative of AALR intended to foster healing from harm done by racial trauma, build community, and inspire action.

We invite you to join us as we honor the oneness of humanity. Help yourself and others heal from racial trauma and minimize the biases we individually and collectively hold about others. 

Ubuntu House seeks to help educate, understand, and minimize racial trauma. 




 Our 2024 Goal--To reach  $40,000 by Dec. 31st!


Thanks to the generosity of wonderful friends and supporters of Ubuntu House, we have raised  $30,000.  Our goal for 2024 is to reach $40,000.    



Our long term goal to obtain property with offices, meeting space and overnight accommodations (typically 1-3 night stays) for small retreats. This will be a space for learning about racial trauma, inner soul work, respite from mental fatigue, fellowship, and consensus-building.

Additionally, we hope to build alliances with partner organizations around the country. 

Every donation is appreciated.

 Come join us in our work.
