The Office of Community Advocacy brings you “the world” in virtual reality

April 9 from 10 a.m. to noon at the SPCC lobby


MIAMI – In an effort to increase cultural sensitivity and improve the quality of life of Miami-Dade County residents, the Office of Community Advocacy has partnered with Equality Lab, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to using virtual reality (VR) to empower communities through immersive 360 technology. Stop by the lobby of the Stephen P. Clark Center, 111 NW 1st Street, from 10 a.m. to noon, on April 9 for the unique opportunity to travel “the world” in virtual reality.

Equality Lab’s primary supporter and funder is the Roddenberry Foundation. Gene Roddenberry created Star Trek to help us envision a hopeful future of peaceful collaboration. They create and run tech-driven projects that further positive vision of a preferred future. Equality Lab has also done VR programs with various police departments to help officers engage with at-risk youth through VR; as well as other community projects granting seniors’ bucket list wishes.
