The Coalition developed strategies at the individual, community, and institutional levels to foster and support an integrated neighborhood. The Coalition is planning to conduct study circles to provide residents an opportunity to build relationships. A community-wide activity was to invite Beverly Daniel Tatum to a community forum to talk about racism and how it affects our children’s education. The Coalition worked with local bookstores to first sell Ms. Tatum’s book at a reduced cost and to publicize the community forum. During the community forum after Ms. Tatum’s presentation, small group discussions were held by facilitators that the Coalition provided. At the institutional level, there is loan program for homebuyers that is designed to encourage and improve neighborhood diversity in particular areas of the community where one race is underrepresented. They also worked closely with the school district to “reinvent” a school to become a “Lab school,” which has attracted a more diverse student population to the school, and increased demand among people of different races for the neighborhood around the school. The heart of the city is Downtown Miami, which is on the eastern side and https://www.torontomulticulturalcalendar.com/2018/08/22/838-affordable-events-august-24-29-in-multicultural-toronto-2018/ includes the neighborhoods of Brickell, Virginia Key, Watson Island, as well as PortMiami.

Downtown Miami is Florida’s largest and most influential central business district, with many major banks, courthouses, financial headquarters, cultural and tourist attractions, schools, parks and a large residential population. Brickell Avenue has the largest concentration of international banks in the United States. The board of directors of a local community center gets together to discuss ways to improve the center so that it is more welcoming to people from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds. They come up with ideas such as hiring more culturally diverse staff, posting notices in different languages, hosting food festivals, and celebrating various cultural events. Your diversity group can sponsor panel discussions, awareness activities, and cultural events to help prevent racism.
As of 2016, a total of 73% of Miami’s population age five and over spoke a language other than English at home. Of this 73%, 64.5% of the population only spoke Spanish at home while 21.1% of the population spoke English at home. About 7% spoke other Indo-European languages at home, while about 0.9% spoke Asian languages or Pacific Islander languages/Oceanic languages at home.

Founded in 2002, the mission of the Reher Center is to preserve and present immigrant and community stories in the Hudson Valley region through its educational programming, exhibits, and events. There will be pop-up eateries, each with their own informational posters about the history of the food they’re making and serving. The food stalls are the culmination of a yearlong research collaboration between the Reher Center and students at the Culinary Institute of America, who have been interviewing people of different cultural food traditions. Conducting public forums and events will increase awareness and reduce racial prejudice. Working in a coalition made up of cross-sector leaders and developing a clear plan will move your community towards a more sustainable effort to eliminate racism. Racial prejudice and racism have most been perpetrated in the U.S. by people of European descent against various other groups, such as African-Americans or Latinos.
Natalia Pérez del Villar of Flamenco Underground is from northern Spain. Sasikala Penumarthi, who teaches in the Emory University dance program, will demonstrate the dance-drama known as Kuchipudi. It’s hard not to get caught up in the rhythms, the colors and the energy of African dance. Staib had that experience years ago when he saw Chuck Davis’ beloved DanceAfrica festival in New York — he wanted to be up there with them. Even though COVID-19 guidelines have relaxed, audiences will be asked when registering whether they’re fully vaccinated or have had a negative COVID test within three days of attending. Staib feels Atlantans are hungry for community and ready to sit shoulder to shoulder, so seating in the 82-seat box theater won’t be socially distanced although masks will be required. It’s up to the performers whether they wear masks but all are required to get COVID tests before the event.
