We are happy to announce that we are partnering with IllumiNative to continue to raise awareness around the benefits of COVID-19 vaccines. This partnership will be invaluable going forward to address the challenges community organizers are facing in reaching younger Native people about vaccines. UNITY is conducting research to learn more about how we can better reach our youth around this issue. Stay tuned for more from your National UNITY Council Regional Representatives at your Regional Meet-Ups.
