I'd like to invite my local readers to an exciting event in South Florida. It's unusual for me to blog about events unless it's somehow related to a missing person but this post is special.
The Imagine Miami Changemaker Summit
is being presented by the Human Services Coalition
and Imagine Miami
. The Human Services Coalition (HSC) is a local non-profit organization that adopts and shares new, innovative approaches to community change. The summit will focus on Arts, Culture and Civic Engagement featuring hands-on workshops with National and Local experts. If you're an activist, volunteer, philanthropist, nonprofit organization or just someone who cares about Miami Dade, this is THE event you don't want to miss.
This totally Green gathering will bring together civic, community and grassroots leaders, emerging leaders from lower-income neighborhoods; community capacity builders from nonprofit, government, education and other sectors; and artists for social change to make a difference.
