In honor of women’s history month we’ve been highlighting some of the women who built South Florida into the place we know today, including some suggested by you. (Thank you for sending those along!)
But we noticed one thing – most of the women recognized have been white, and that’s a pretty incomplete picture of our history, especially here. Immigrants from Latin America and the Caribbean have been part of SoFlo’s development from the beginning.
We were inspired by the New York Times “Overlooked” series, which has been sharing the stories of powerful women who didn’t make the obituary pages at the time of their death because back then, pretty much only white men did.
Who are the women of color in South Florida history that society missed? Just hit reply to the newsletter and let us know. We want to tell their stories too.
With so much information coming out about the FIU bridge collapse, today we’re focusing our news update on that.
Oops. In Friday’s newsletter, we mentioned O Cinema locations in Miami Shores and Wynwood, but the organization no longer has a Miami Shores location.
Complete Streets take cyclists and buses into account, with a dedicated lane for each. A pilot program in Downtown Miami makes the street safer for pedestrians, cyclists and transit riders, and it doesn’t slow down traffic. Give Miami-Dade Transit your feedback on which streets you’d like to see completed.
