Immigrants Economic Contributions to Miami Panel, LIVE on Facebook
Immigrants Economic Contributions to Miami Panel, LIVE on Facebook, is brought to you by The Office of New Americans of Miami-Dade. During this panel, we’re chatting with a group of New American and 1st Generation American entrepreneurs, small business owners and innovators about how they are scaling up and contributing to our local economy. (Visit us online or follow on social media, for a list of speakers.)
With a theme of Food. Family. Freedom., the community-at-large is invited to celebrate the social and economic contributions of the more than 2 million immigrants in South Florida.
As a part of Miami Citizenship Week, residents are encouraged to support immigrant powered businesses, attend virtual events, learn about those that make Miami so vibrant and diverse, and even try a new recipe from one of the many countries that make up Miami-Dade. Events include discussions with immigrant business owners and local elected officials, virtual brunch, naturalization clinics, food recipe sharing, and more. In partnership with Cities for Citizenship (C4C), this week of happenings is part of a major national initiative of more than 85 participating cities and counties aimed at increasing citizenship among eligible U.S. permanent residents and encouraging investment in citizenship and financial empowerment programs.
