Who We Are
The Office of Community Advocacy is part of Miami-Dade County’s effort to provide resources dedicated to facilitating dialogue among the citizens of our diverse community.
The Office of Community Advocacy consists of five boards: The Asian-American Advisory Board (AAAB); Black Affairs Advisory Board (BAAB); Commission for Women (CFW); Hispanic Affairs Advisory Board (HAAB) and the Community Relations Board (CRB). Each board is charged with advocating for the special concerns of its constituents.
The Boards address residents' concerns in areas such as education; economic development, health care, women’s rights, the criminal justice system, human rights, immigration, police-community relations and housing.
The Office of Community Advocacy encourages these diverse groups to meet, strategize and develop solutions relevant to their needs and concerns. It also acts as a bridge between residents of all ethnicities and allows them to examine their unique views in order to promote and improve community relations.Print E-mail Page |
