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!

#MiamiWalks | Miami River Greenway
May 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
#MiamiWalks is part of a global walking movement known as Jane’s Walk, and is proud to be an anchor initiative of the 2018 #10DaysofConnection!
This neighborhood exploration of Miami River will be led by Anneliese Morales, a Miami native, avid community activist & volunteer coordinator who’s determined to make Miami the best it can be. This walking tour will focus on the riverside history in East Little Havana. Starting by the mouth of the Miami River, where this area began thousands of years ago, our group will explore the roots of Cuban migration at Jose Marti Park, once known as “Tent City.”
Stops along the way include a cluster of designated historical sites such as the Miami River Inn and the Miami Hispanic Cultural Center, also known as the J.W. Warner House, a landmark built in 1906. Discover these sites and learn more about the Miami River Greenway, a waterfront linear park, becoming the next multicultural public space connecting Miamians!
