The South Florida Black Prosperity Alliance will host their first event titled “The State of Black South Florida” on September 25th at Florida International University’s Biscayne Bay Campus. The alliance is the combined effort of more than a dozen organizations including the local NAACP branches, the Urban League of Broward, the Circle of Brotherhood, and the Miami-Dade Chamber of Commerce.
Earlier this year, Hy-Lo News reported about the launch of the organization that brought together some of South Florida’s top leaders like a local version of Marvel’s Avengers. And much like the Avengers, this group wants to save and improve the lives of South Florida’s Black residents. Through partnerships with Florida International and Florida Memorial universities, the tri-county coalition plans to study the source of South Florida’s racial inequalities in economics, education, health, and justice. The alliance remains steadfast on commitment to build a more prosperous Black South Florida
Led by a collective of dynamic and long-time cross-sector community leaders, the Alliance will provide attendees with an update on its progress to date, current strategic priorities, and opportunities for interested leaders to plug directly into action groups focused on the Alliance’s key target areas, including: Government Affairs and Advocacy, Outreach and Membership, Education, Youth Development, Healthcare, Economic Development and Prosperity, Marketing/Public Relations & Communication and Finance/Fundraising.
