The National Association of Black Journalists voted to withdraw from UNITY because "as a business model, UNITY no longer is the most financially prudent for NABJ and its membership." Richard Prince writes: "The vote [to withdraw from Unity] diminishes what was a pioneering coalition of African Americans, Hispanics, Asian Americans and Native Americans when the first Unity convention was staged in 1994 in Atlanta, overcoming cultural differences to present a united front in the quest for diversity in the news business." || "I am saddened by the decision," writes UNITY's president.
