Challenge Yourself To Connect
During the 10 Days of Connection, challenge yourself to connect across lines of difference. There are many ways to do that: share a meal with someone you wouldn’t normally cross paths with, read a book or watch a movie that highlights the beauty of connection, take part in #MiamiWalks to get to know a new neighborhood, etc.! Check out and RSVP to the many opportunities to connect below, and if you’d like to host a connection experience, learn more on the Host page!

Let’s Do Lunch Day
We live in the same place with so many different people, but rarely do we have a real conversation with someone who is different from us. You can’t hate someone whose story you know, so be brave, step out of your comfort zone, and “do lunch” with that neighbor who was born in a different country than you were, or who worships in a building you’ve never been in, or is attracted to people that you are not, or whose skin tone does not match your own. Prepare to be surprised that your differences are fascinating, your humanity is incredibly alike, and you never knew what you never know! After your lunch, share about your experience using #LetsDoLunch and #10DaysofConnection!
Want to participate in #LetsDoLunch Day? Make a lunch date with someone not like you and register here.
Want to co-host #LetsDoLunch Day? If you or your organization would like to sign on to promote #LetsDoLunch day, please contact Roberta Shevin, Executive Director at MCCJ (email@example.com).
*Note: Hosts can either choose to align their connection experience to the “theme” of the day – in this case, #LetsDoLunch – or do their own thing on any of the 10 days!
