Delray Beach Resident Julie Peyton volunteered with the United States Holocaust Museum on a trip to Rwanda. She spent a week learning about the history of the genocide and meeting with survivors. Peyton visited the country along with representatives from the museum's Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide. Sundial spoke with Peyton about her experience and genocide prevention efforts.

A new photography exhibition called The Compassion Project focuses on formerly incarcerated women who have re-entered society. The exhibition is interactive and includes recorded interviews with the women. Sundial producer Alejandra Martinez spoke with the curator of the project, Starr Sariego, about inspiration and what the experience is like for those going to the exhibition.
