2020 Urban Core Candidates Forums

Giving Miami’s Urban Core a Voice. By Samuel Joseph.

Miami is in desperate need of change and reinvigoration. Too often in elections past urban core residents and stakeholders have had to settle for choosing among the same characters and familiar names on the ballot due to a lack of qualified and/or interested candidates.

With the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve learned that disinterested, unsympathetic, and non-transparent government and/or public servants are a danger to the community’s health and well-being. These factors have all combined to make the 2020 election season perhaps the most consequential election in generations. “Change” must come to Miami and the rest of the world because our lives literally depend on it!

To assist our urban core voters in making informed decisions about the upcoming elections, the Urban Core Community Coalition (UCCC) and BHA, in partnership with our urban core friends and stakeholders cordially invite your participation at this special community gathering.

Join DNA president and guest moderator Amal Solh Kabbani on October 15th and 22nd for important discussions with candidates seeking to serve our community by addressing the quality of life issues facing the residents, merchants, visitors, and other stakeholders in Miami’s urban core.
