WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY
Fort For All
For the past 5 years, The Unity Project has been proud to serve the community of Fort Atkinson, WI. We see ourselves as "change agents", always striving to fill any need our community needs in order to make it a safer place for all to live; regardless of gender, religion, race, color, creed, sexual orientation or any other aspect of life that may make us unique from one another.
We have worked hard to build strong relationships within our community, with local businesses and with our local government to ensure our city remains safe and inclusive.
FORT FALL FIESTA
You may recognize us from our Annual Fort Fall Fiesta. This party is a celebration of our city's diversity and seeks to introduce culture into the community.
Historically, this event has grown every year since it's inception and has included activities such as face painting and a cornhole tournament. We're also proud to showcase our Fort Atkinson Generals baseball team as well as provide a space for vendors, fresh cooked food, music and dancing.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we were unable to hold our annual Fiesta in 2020. But, we are already planning for this year's party! See our EVENTS section for more information.
