Public Allies Miami Partner Organization Spotlight: The Center for Social Change

April 24, 2017
By Brandon Johnson, 2016-2017 Public Ally

The Center for Social Change is a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit nested in the quaint Miami
Shenandoah neighborhood just outside of Coral Gables. The Center’s vision is a world
where everyone commits to being the solution. They accomplish this by engaging and
interacting with the community and its relative movements to stay on top of challenges.
The center itself doubles as a co-working community of nonprofits, social entrepreneurs,
and community leaders who work across sectors to ignite change. The euphoric work
environment mirrors the eclectic and diverse nature of their line of work. It is essentially
a melting pot of socially-oriented minds who develop grassroots ideas that manifest into
social breakthroughs through the network of community, members, and political support
facilitated by the center.

As a leader in the community, The Center for Social Change regularly partakes in
community and public meetings. Not only does this reinforce their commitment to the
community, it gives them the opportunity to listen and learn how to best advocate for the
demands of the community. For example, The Center for Social Change has recently
started a venture for a sacred house -- providing adequate housing for women
transitioning from prison. This was a gap that they were able to identify and address
within the community.

The center also hosts a variety of educational, and informative programs, services, and volunteer opportunities that are beneficial in multiple facets. Here are some of their upcoming events:
• Brown Club of Miami Presents: Slavery & Incarceration April 26 @ 7:00pm - 8:30pm
• Edge Ambassadors Networking Happy Hour April 27 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
• Conscious Entrepreneurs Roundtable Breakfast April 28 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
• Jane’s Walk (Refer to:
