ICYMI, TECH HAS A GENDER PROBLEM.

But Miami’s doing better, right? Everywhere you turn we’ve got women at the top, from CIC Miami to Black Tech Week to Wyncode.

But that doesn’t mean it’s all good.

As one female founder said about a recent article talking up our recent startup funding successes: “I read it and all I see is dudes, dudes and more dudes.”

As we try to put ourselves on the national map, it’s something we gotta get to talking about. This is what women on our tech scene have to say.

Wanna talk about it ASAP? Come out tonight to hear from women leaders in the corporate and startup worlds. Deets here.

What's New In The 305

Model student. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is visiting today to give Miami-Dade props for dropping its sanctuary city policy. He’ll speak at PortMiami at 3 p.m. and will highlight us as an example for cities like Chicago, whose response to Trump’s request was basically “hell no.” (Miami Herald)

P.S. Not sure what we’re talking about? Here’s our cheat sheet on sanctuary cities and where Miami stands.

Miami time. Miami-Dade tested the soil in Devon Aire Park in West Kendall two-and-a-half years ago, found high arsenic levels… and didn’t tell anyone until June of this year. Despite the fact that the park is attached to a school. (Miami Herald)   

Movin’ on up. This map shows every single street Miami Beach plans to raise by 2025. (The Next Miami)

Justice is served. After months of investigating, Miami Beach has shut down four local massage parlors that were fronts for prostitution and human trafficking. Now the three people behind the abuse are behind bars. (Miami Herald)

Over it. A replica of a Confederate general has repped Florida in the U.S. Capitol since 1922. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is over it, and has asked the state legislature to hold a special session to vote to remove it. We already did that once before, but state reps couldn’t decide who to replace the general with, so he stayed put. (Tampa Bay Times)

“Just no.” Republicans Sen. Rubio, Rep. Ros-Lehtinen, and Rep. Curbelo all slammed President Trump for saying Tuesday that “both sides” are to blame for the violence that went down in Charlottesville. (Miami Herald)

TALK IT OUT

Even before things went down in Charlottesville, the convo happening this Sunday – “Reframing the pain of hate into the power of community” – felt important.

Now it feels absolutely necessary.

Join us at O Cinema on Sunday for a screening of the doc “Whose Streets?” about the Ferguson riots and a convo with folks on the social justice front about how to channel all that hate and anger into something constructive. 

If you can’t make it, we’ll be livestreaming it on our Facebook page. Deets here.
