On Tuesday, Oct. 5, from 9-10 a.m., the Community Foundation of Sarasota County will host free interactive virtual panel discussion with three local nonprofits connecting people and ideas to build a more equitable region. The program will feature Donna Hanley, a board member with Project Pride SRQ; Jeannie Perales, chief experience officer at The Bay Park Conservancy; and Michéle Des Verney Redwine, executive director of the Suncoast Black Arts Collaborative. The conversation will be moderated by Mercedes Soler, president and co-owner of Solmart Media and a board member of the Community Foundation.
