The United Urban Warriors Society is hosting its first annual Native American Walk for Sobriety in Richmond on Saturday.
The two-hour long event begins promptly at 11 a.m. from the intersection of San Pablo and Macdonald avenues (next to Chase Bank), proceeds down Macdonald to 33rd Street, then concludes at Nichols Park, where bottled water and refreshments will be served.
The Sobriety Walk aims to raise awareness in Richmond of the issues surrounding alcoholism and alcohol abuse and its significant impact on the Native American community, according to organizers.
On July 7, Richmond City Council presented a proclamation honoring the inaugural Sobriety Walk.
“We invite ALL of the community to attend. Everybody is welcome,” organizers said, adding that walkers are encouraged to stop at Native Wellness Center at 25th and MacDonald as well.
The United Urban Warrior Society is a national organization advocating for the advancement of Native Americans.
