From Sarasota Magazine, "Uniting people in these divisive times is challenging. And it’s even harder during a pandemic. But our 2022 Unity winners (our 12th annual honorees) have been motivated by the idea that we’re stronger and better as a community when people of different backgrounds come together. Our winners have provided meaningful work for people with disabilities, baseball in underserved communities, a cultural center for the Latinx community, a place of safety for LGBTQ youth, advocacy for victims of sexual assault in the military and caring for the homeless. We are a better place because of their passion and commitment."
"I'm humbled and honored with this award, but this whole effort is really all about our amazing team members with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It's their time — I'm just thrilled to be able to help offer them a platform to let their abilities shine."
