The Copper Door B&B and Ana Sofía Peláez, author of the James Beard-nominated The Cuban Table, come together for a Cuban inspired lunch and conversation about the cultural differences that keep us apart and the city that needs us to come together. This connection experience is necessary in South Florida because it incorporates how important cultural diversity is and how they make up who we are in our communities.
In a state as diverse as Florida it is important that our workplaces reflect this diversity. Being open to diversity often just requires a personal connection and that's what we hope to leave you with after this lunch and learn.
This event is open to all members of the community who are interested in learning about how to become a better ally in the workplace for the LGBT community. The event includes complimentary lunch and will focus particularly on how to be an ally to the trans community. We encourage you to come and join us for this interactive experience and learn a little more about our community.
In the spirit of connectedness, the City of Fort Lauderdale, the Broward County Library, and Museum of Discovery and Science and other local partners are bringing South Florida locals together to highlight the vital importance of early literacy programs by showcasing how each partner encourages reading for our Pre-K to third grade children. This is a Progressive Lunch & Walk.
MCCJ invites you to ask a stranger to lunch today to advance our community in understanding and respect of others through conversation. 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.
South Florida, due to its transient nature is a place which has a weak relationship between military members, veterans and the community. The veteran community is seen as mentally ill, incapable or is misunderstood as a whole. Act-2 wants to disperse these thoughts and narrative with this event. Act 2 wants to bring together combat veterans, entrepreneurs and local community leaders to have a simple sit down lunch and begin a new dialogue with one another.
