Every year, Sarasota Magazine celebrates champions of diversity in an editorial contest judged by an independent panel of previous Unity Awards winners. This year’s Unity Awards are proudly presented by Community Foundation of Sarasota County.
Unity Awards Alums
We’re looking for members of the community who are committed to bridging divides across racial, ethnic, religious, sexual orientation, socioeconomic, and physical and mental ability groups.
