JULY 15, 2020 Virtual Regional Caucuses Day 1

Each year, the UNITY Organization convenes for a National Conference in various cities throughout the country. At these conferences, a young man and a young woman from each UNITY affiliated youth councils (along with individual members) participate in Regional Caucuses to identify the Top 10 Issues Facing Native Youth each year. These Regional Caucuses serve as a networking opportunity as well as a brainstorming session for how to address community challenges. The following year’s NUC Executive Committee uses these Caucus discussions to create that year’s National EC Initiative to address one of the Top 10 Issues.
