The Miami-Dade County Commission for Women is bringing together Miami locals who care about women's rights for a roundtable discussion about the hot topics affecting women at the national, state, and local level. Women are a majority of the population in Miami-Dade County and the most recent 2019 Status of Women Report shows that women are lagging behind in some key economic indicators. Legislation is also being debated at all levels of government that affect the well-being of women. As a result the work of the Commission for Women advocates for women in the community and strives to improve their quality of life. Join us and help us discuss ways to build an equitable future.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be without a home? Did you know that there are 7,057 homeless people in Miami-Dade and over 4,000 living on the streets on an average night? United Way of Miami-Dade and the Community Justice Project are bringing together South Florida locals to walk in the shoes of some of our communities most vulnerable people. United Way has developed a community simulation activity that shows different scenarios and issues that can contribute to homelessness. This activity will inform and suggest the proper level of care and service needed to support those facing homelessness.
The landscape of our state has been changing rapidly, more immigrants have settled and cities/counties have changed tremendously. This event will create an environment in which the community will be able to talk and discuss safely around these issues.
A group of Broward leaders is bringing together South Florida locals to engage in a conversation around race and equity. This conversation will be an interactive workshop that will help us as a community to come together around a common issue.
