An interview with Maria Ruiz - Miami Beach Community Development Director

What role do you see for community groups and non-profits like ours?

There are several things that groups like yours can do:

+Accountability Partners – Hold the powers that be accountable for doing what they can to make the situation better.

+Innovation Partners – Share good ideas with us. While we are always looking for progress, we may not catch everything.

+Passionate Stakeholders – Care about what happens in the community and how and where people live. Serve as the voice of advocacy when things aren’t as they should be.
