Network Development and Support

Catalyst Miami helps groups come together and form networks that can make a bigger impact across sectors, issues, and communities. Examples include the Miami Climate Alliance, the Clean Energy For All coalition, the Consumer State Advocacy Project, the Miami Birth Justice Initiative, and more.

By connecting our clients and leadership graduates with groups like these, we foster sustained, effective activism. This also helps them learn about what’s happening on a national, state, and local level so they can get involved in community projects and advocate for necessary policy change. The backing of these networks plays a critical role in policy wins.

The Miami Climate Alliance is made up of 100+ organizations, as well as local residents and nationwide experts. It is dedicated to building urgency, power, and cohesion around climate change and sea level rise by achieving significant policy wins and working to establish a model for just, equitable, and resilient communities.

The Consumer State Advocacy Project, which seeks to expand Medicaid in Florida, includes partners and community members from across the state, such as the Florida Policy Institute, Florida Voices for Health, the Florida Health Justice Project, and Central Florida Jobs with Justice. Broadly speaking, the project uses national healthcare policy and its impact on local communities as a benchmark and guide to increasing access to care.
