The PEACenter is a proud sponsor of the 2021-2022 South Arts Southern Tour of Independent Filmmakers. The films selected for the Tour were selected with a commitment to equity, community engagement and non-extractive, documentary storytelling. Each film will be available for attendees to view on demand during a four-day window allowing viewers to stop and resume at their leisure (at no charge). There will also be an in-person screening that will support our local nonprofit partners.

School systems around the nation are seeing the need for a greater understanding of—and deliberate action to address—the sources of racism and racial inequities within their schools. They are making bold institutional commitments to an in-depth review of their policies and procedures, and investing in anti-racism education for students, teachers, administrators, and staff for the long run. In Sarasota, recurring tensions around race and persistent racial inequality indicate that the district needs to join these school systems around the nation.
