We Are United – Thank You!

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all who took part in the #WeAreUnited march on Sunday, November 5th in Downtown Miami. We would also like to express our sincere appreciation to our valued partners for their unwavering support. More than 100 individuals attended our 2nd annual March from The Freedom Tower to The Underline.

We choose to stand for humanity

On October 7th, 2023 we issued a “Statement Regarding Hamas Attack on Isreal.” In that statement, we condemned the horrific attacks against civilians in Israel by Hamas, and we continue to do so. Since then, many in our Miami community are grieving, angry, and scared, as both Israelis and Palestinians will go to sleep tonight mourning the senseless loss of loved ones.

Statement Regarding Hamas Attack on Israel

Today, we grieve. Mosaic Miami joins South Florida’s civic and political leaders in condemning the horrific acts unfolding in Israel against civilians, including innocent children and the elderly. The loss of life is horryfing, as are the brutal kidnappings. We pray for the quick and safe return of those who are being held.

Our Journey from MCCJ to Mosaic Miami

From battling racism as an interfaith group in the 1930s to supporting equality during the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s to helping our community heal from the turbulence of the 1980s, all the way through today’s many challenges, our organization has led the way in times when our city has most needed a voice for understanding, respect, and compassion.
