Umu Igbo Unite (UIU), was founded in 2005 in Atlanta, Georgia by the D.I. Anadu and J.C. Okpukpara families.The motivation behind UIU’s birth was to address the lack of a structured network that catered to the specific cultural, professional, and social needs of first-generation Igbo Americans and the greater Diaspora. Since its inception, UIU has grown to over 5,000 members nationwide with 15 active chapters: Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, DMV, Boston, Tristate (NY, NJ, CT), Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, Twin Cities, Bay Area, Austin, Miami, and Seattle.
