The Rotary Club of Sarasota Foundation has awarded Embracing Our Differences a $5,000 grant directed to empower EOD’s celebrated educational outreach programs. Presented in partnership with the regional school district and nationally recognized educators, these programs impact the lives of thousands of area teachers and students every year. These include annual workshops and retreats that provide arts and diversity curricula for area educators, bi-county reading initiatives, free bus transportation for students and teachers to visit area cultural venues and student docent programs in high schools. Sarah Wertheimer, Embracing Our Differences' executive director, reports 932 teachers and 39,211 students participating in the organization’s exhibit and educational programs in 2018 alone. Embracing Our Differences' annual juried international art exhibit returns to Sarasota's Bayfront Park, January 19–March 15.
