What We Do
We’re developing a comprehensive and engaging civics curriculum as part of our Civics305 educational work to present in high schools, in college classrooms, and at informal meet-ups of young people and millennials across Miami-Dade. Want us to come to your school? Shoot us an email.
Our organizing team works with student and community leaders holding Civics305 civic-activist trainings and workshops on how to organize effectively, connect with voters, and engage civically in local government.
Part of Civics305 includes our repMIA newsletter that connects millennials and gets out important details of county government in Miami-Dade, like what’s happening at commission meetings and how everyday citizens can participate in their local government in ways that matter to them, from understanding zoning to advocating for positive neighborhood amenities like wide sidewalks that provide safety and encourage healthy activity. Sign up for our monthly newsletter!
Our organizers are registering young voters across college campuses in Miami, ensuring that young people have the ability and motivation to cast their vote. Plus they’re engaging students personally through one-on-one conversations to find out what energizes them and working together to imagine their ideal community. If you want to volunteer and organize with us, fill out our volunteer form or email our Organizing Director Gilbert.
We cultivate meaningful storytelling as a pathway to civic understanding and ultimately action at the local level through our Story Project that’s gathering stories about young people’s lives, the struggles we’re facing and what we envision for our future. Share your story with us, we want to hear it.
