The CRB 50th Anniversary Commemoration is recognizing the work of the CRB for the past fifty years through activities that are both commemorative and educational, highlighting the CRB's past and anticipating its future.
For the past 50 years, Miami-Dade community leaders serving on the CRB have demonstrated their commitment to fostering mutual understanding, tolerance and respect among all economic, social, religious and ethnic groups in the County.
