Our Community - Village Spirit in the City!

Jul 28, 2015

 KNBA keeping you in tuned with Our Community! In today's segment, Danny Preston speaks with President of the Sobermiut organization, Sonia Vent and co-founder/secretary Steven Randazoo. Sobermiut was created in 2004/2005 as a nonprofit that unifies Alaskan Native individuals, families, and communities that reinforces a healthy lifestyle: free of alcohol and drug abuse. Sobermiut will be having a fundraiser for the Alaska Native Community Center. The center is a place where people can get together and just be their selves. Not a lot of the community centers have a focus on the individual and their culture, but the ANCC aides in exactly that.
