With months of planning and in partnership with Arizona State University, UNITY successfully hosted its first ever virtual conference earlier this month. Through UNITY’s Wellness Warrior Program, funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, UNITY spearheaded the free event with as many as 20 watch parties participating. In all, it’s estimated a few hundred viewers logged on from around Indian Country to participate in the live general sessions and online breakouts. Many of the watch parties were hosted by youth councils.
