I am Bill Diggs, the Executive Director of the Miami-Dade Economic Advocacy Trust (MDEAT) and I would like to welcome and thank you for taking the time to participate in our study.  Your feedback will aid us in proving remedies to remove the barriers of Black and African Diaspora Communities in Miami-Dade County, thus fostering improvements in specific Targeted Urban Areas (TUAs) that are an integral part of what makes Miami-Dade unique.  ("click" here for survey).

Your input is important because we want to hear from you directly. We also want to encourage you to participate in the forums that will be held throughout the county and online. This is your opportunity to share solutions with us.   You are assisting us in building the best solutions because we have YOUR direct input and focus. 


Thank you for joining us and your commitment making a BETTER Miami-Dade County for us all.
