Panchita  Peterson has worked most of her adult life addressing racism on Cape Cod. She trained at the National Coalition Building Institute and worked as a Diversity Specialist in schools across the Cape.  Panchita is in her late70's but came out of retirement a few years ago because she felt like she still had work to do. 

The Racial Justice Study Group is held on Thursdays at the Wellfleet Public Library - more information here 

This piece comes to us through our production partners at Atlantic public Media through their media training program, the Transom Story Workshop in Woods Hole. Rebecca is a recent graduate from the workshop.  You can find out more about the program at Transom.org.
