What is Unity in the Community?
Unity in the Community is the largest multicultural celebration in the Inland Northwest. Unity in the Community began in 1995 when community members sensed ethnic fragmentation in the Spokane community. Unity in the Community was created to celebrate the strength of diversity and create an understanding between all races and cultures.
Since its start in 1995, Unity in the Community has continued to grow; promoting its mission of educating, showcasing, celebrating, and sustaining a diverse community.
Unity in the Community features five main areas:
- The Cultural Villages
- Career/Education Fair
- Early Learning & Youth Villages
- Health Fair
- Cultural Entertainment
2015 Unity Events:
- School Supplies Drive: Boxes are located at several drop-off locations around Spokane to collect school supplies for local K-8 students in need. Through the work of our wonderful volunteers, great fundraising activities and community support we are striving towards our biggest school supply give away ever. This year’s goal is to hand out 1000+ bags of school supplies to kids in our community during the Unity celebration.
