Civics and Democracy at The Underline
Radical Partners and 10 Days of Connection are hosting an event inspired by the concept of the Human Libraries, local scholars serving as human libraries. Liz Rebecca Alarcón is a media entrepreneur with expertise on US-Latinos and Latin America. As the Founder and Executive Director of Project Pulso, Liz works at the intersection of media & advocacy. She will be sharing her story around her Latin American roots and how that impacts the way she engages civically and culturally in the U.S. with attendees. Additionally, Alejandro González as a Business professional with 7+ years of experience launching and scaling social ventures in the United States and Latin America, will be sharing his story around the Cuban intergenerational diaspora and building community through entrepreneurship with attendees.
10 Days of Connection is a community-driven initiative to confront the increased divisiveness facing communities across the country. It is an annual community-led challenge inspiring all locals to step out of their comfort zone and come together with people from different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives, to unite in our shared humanity. From May 1 through May 10, 2022 multiple “Connection Experience” will be available to people throughout Miami and Broward County areas. It is free to attend this program.
This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Miami Foundation.
Date/time: May 10 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
