Thank You JR!

JR Cook has stepped aside as UNITY’s executive director, a position he held since the organization’s birth in 1976. When announcing the transition, JR said, “It’s been quite a journey. I thank the Creator and everyone who has been involved with and helped make UNITY into an organization I’m proud of and have been privileged to serve.
