“We can only achieve greatness when we work together,” said Arriola. “Unity in the Community is a welcoming venue for everyone to share their thoughts on how we can build a better, stronger, and more just tomorrow.”
“This is the year of advocacy, the Me Too movement, Black Lives Matter and the Marjory Stoneman Douglas undertaking. It is important for all communities to find a way to connect with what unites us,” added NAACP Miami-Dade President Ruban Roberts. “This is why, Unity in the Community is so very important. The NAACP and the City of Miami Beach are working together to build bridges and tear down walls.”
