2017 #MiamiWalks Kick-off Party!
April 24, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-4
Join us for an evening of activities in celebration of greater Miami’s 2nd annual Jane’s Walk weekend!
During the first weekend of May 2017, residents of all ages throughout greater Miami are invited to experience the global walking movement called Jane’s Walk. In neighborhoods across the county there will be a variety of free, citizen-led walking tours where attendees can actively connect with friends and neighbors outdoors, while engaging in conversations with one another and learning more about the city they live in. These kind of walks, inspired by a writer and activist from the 1960s named Jane Jacobs, have engaged tens of thousands of people all over the world in 200+ cities since 2007. Now for a 2nd year, Jane’s Walk (aka #MiamiWalks) will embark in Miami and we’re looking for individuals and organizations to be part of our local event weekend.
