Black Affairs Advisory Board Committees

The Black Affairs Advisory Board has several committees which are reflective of the issues and concerns of its residents. These committees are:

  • Black Heritage Planning
  • Judicial
  • Housing
  • Health Care
  • Economic Development
  • Education
  • Crisis Intervention/Respect Life!
  • Budget and Finance

Some of the activities of these Committees include:  Black History Month events which features a month-long celebration and award-winning exhibit in the lobby of the Stephen P. Clark Government Center; Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. observance; the Annual "Pillars Awards and Young Pillars Scholarship" awards; the sponsorship of "Village Dialogues" which deal with education, health care, youth, elderly and domestic violence and preservation of health and financial assets.

The Board was also instrumental in creating a "Truancy Hotline" in conjunction with Miami-Dade Public Schools to combat truancy and has collaborated with an "Anti-Violence Ambassador" to illustrate the impact of violence.
