We are living in divisive times. Politically, socially and economically, we seem to be defining ourselves by our differences and demonizing those who aren’t part of our tribe. It’s easy to get depressed about that—or even worse, to give in to it. But right here in Sarasota and Manatee, people are working to bring us together, no matter how varied our beliefs, race, net worth or abilities. The winners of this year’s Unity Awards embrace not only our differences but our shared humanity, and their accomplishments are making our city a richer and more interesting place.
Come celebrate present and past Unity Awards winners with us at a luncheon on February 8 at Michael’s On East. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
