Private Beaches and Food Deserts: Examining Sarasota Critically

Sarasota is often seen as a tourist haven, whether that is meant positively or pejoratively. This conception is problematic because a) it conceals the injustices that occur there, and b) as a tourist hub it can easily be seen as 'fake,' and thus not important to social justice. This panel presentation comes from New College students who have conducted social-justice-oriented studies of Sarasota. We hope to uncover the interesting and sometimes depressing aspects about Sarasota that show it to be diverse, conflictual, unbalanced, unjust, and connected to national and global systems of oppression.
