MCCJ challenges all of us to embrace Miami’s diversity and build an inclusive community by asking a person who you see everyday but do not know their story to grab a bite to eat. This can be a co-worker, a neighbor, a person who works at a business that you frequent, or even someone you ride the elevator with everyday but have never spoken to. Engage with the community and help build bridges so we can all love loudly.
