Overview of City
At the crossroads of North America, South America, and the Caribbean, Miami is a mix of cultures, languages, economic differences, classes, and nationalities. Within a few blocks, you can try Cuban food in Little Havana while listening to conversations in Spanish, encounter buildings covered by colorful murals in Wynwood while hearing music in English, and take in Haitian music seasoned with Creole in Little Haiti. Against this diverse background, DOOR Miami’s focus in on redefining service through discussions about faith, solidarity, and compassion while witnessing the contrasts of economic status, class, and nationalities in Miami.
