Every Miamian has a story … how they got here, why they stay, what they want for the future. When we have a chance to talk about our experiences in this town and hear others, we connect and learn about what matters to all of us. On October 18, 2016, we invited 100 Miamians to kick off My Miami Story by hosting their own conversation. We expanded that conversation through the end of 2016. My Miami Story got people talking about the Our Miami Report.


These conversations were about getting Miamians thinking about the issues they care about, whether it’s making sure our kids get a good education, finding a safe, affordable place to live, or landing a job that’s close to home. They were about creating a space to link up with friends, old and new, who feel the same way (and maybe some who don’t). They were about discovering how each of us can join the thousands of people making Miami-Dade County a better place to live for everyone.
