UNITY Announces New Class of Earth Ambassadors

UNITY has announced the recipients of the 2017 UNITY Earth Ambassadors Leadership Program. The new class is the second group to be honored through this Environmental Stewardship program, which was reinstated in 2015 thanks in part to a matching grant awarded to UNITY by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC).

Another matching grant awarded this year by the SMSC will allow this year’s class to attend training sessions and informational workshops to increase their knowledge of environmental issues affecting Native America, learn to serve as an ambassador to increase awareness of the issues affecting the environmental quality on Native lands, and promote the efforts to address environmental concerns within the nation’s Native communities. Topics will focus on, but not be limited to, recycling, conservation, regeneration, and restoration. Read More
