Miami-Dade Panel Addresses Politics Of Race And Inclusion
Miami-Dade County’s Black Affairs Advisory Board and Hispanic Affairs Advisory Board spent four hours talking race, diversity and inclusion yesterday.
The discourse was a response to a racially charged commission debate over a county contract last February.

The participants suggested several next steps -- including a focus on more inclusive economic development. Hear the full story here:Listen: Miami-Dade leaders talk diversity, race and inclusion.
