Black Affairs Advisory Board Chair's Message

The members of the Black Affairs Advisory Board believe that by working together, we can make a difference.  Each of our appointed Board members volunteer their time in service to the County by working to ensure that our elected officials and our County government, pay attention to the issues that  impact Miami-Dade County residents of African descent. We serve as the ‘eyes and ears’ of the Black World Community. 

Our motto this year has been “Ten Percent Talk and Ninety Percent Action.” As a result, we are a very busy Board. We are proud of our Miami-Dade County Coordinated Response Team (MDC-CRT) initiative which provides coordinated services to those impacted by the violence that devastates our community. The MDC-CRT connects victims of violence and their families with public, private and government services.  We also recognize that improving the economic health of the Black World Community will do much to address many of the problems of the Black World Community.  Our Economic Development Committee is working with local banks in furtherance of the “Black Affairs Advisory Board’s Homeownership Initiative,”  which seeks to provide concrete opportunities for those seeking the American Dream of homeownership. 

We invite the you to attend our monthly meetings, and encourage your participation.  Black Affairs Advisory Board meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m. in the Stephen P. Clark Center. To address the board, please call (305) 375-4606 to be added to the monthly agenda.


Stephen Hunter Johnson, Chair
