History of the Community Relations Board

"Given the tremendous cultural diversity that exists in our County and the community tensions that arise from time to time, it is in all our best interests to have a respected diverse group of prominent community leaders with the authority to act independently to address issues impacting on intergroup relations and to assist in their resolution,' - Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners, July 2000.

Since 1963, the Miami-Dade County Community Relations Board (CRB) has worked to foster mutual understanding, tolerance and respect among all economic, social, religious and ethnic groups in the county. CRB members today must possess the same level of community pride, interest, integrity, responsibility and commitment to intergroup relations as those who served so well in the past.

The CRB serves an advisor to the Mayor, Board of County Commissioners and the County administration on issues impacting intergroup relations. The thirty members are prominent community leaders who work to bring together diverse population groups and interests to create a cohesive community where all people are valued and respected.
