The United Urban Warrior Society (UUWS) of Central California will host its second annual Native American Walk for Sobriety on Saturday, July 16, in Richmond.

The event will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. starting from the intersection of San Pablo and Macdonald avenues. The walk will proceed down Macdonald to 33rd Street, where water and refreshments will be offered, and continue on to the Native American Wellness Center at 2566 Macdonald Ave.

The event aims to shine a light on the destruction of alcoholism, which the UUWS considers a great concern among Native Americans. But it is a community-wide concern, as well, and the UUWS has been using sobriety walks to reach all community members.

UUWS advocates for advancements in human and civil rights for Native Americans.


  1. Dear Mike Aldax, I wanted to know why my responses suggested that I had repeated the same response which I did not do. I was responding to an Response some one left on the board concerning a violent act against another. My message to that person was clear, concise and correct and needed to be posted and read to educate all who needed to know and become educated about the Subject of Violence. It never went through and I sent you an email asking why i was recieving the error message and never heard back. I have created Newsletters for Grassroots Populations in the past and plan to implement in the near future. Our group Mothers Against Senseless Killings were funded in 2004 by National Office of Victims of Crimes/Department of Justice Programs and again awarded funds in or around 2007-09 to implement the Newsletter again. I personally was approved by the National Webinar Administrators were I periodically communicate with others Disciplinary Teams and Victims/Survivors of Violent Crimes. We are known as MASK the Grassroots Project on National Sites. Since around 2009 we transitioned our name and now do business as the Healing Circles of Hope- MASK. We are a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization who has implemented numerous programs within the City of Richmond ;and North Richmond to include surrounding cities of West County and beyond. Please check into the problem and resolve the matter. Thank you,

    Executive Director/Charlene Harris
