26269: Hermantin( Publication) The Haitian Community in Miami-Dade (fwd)
From: leonie hermantin <email@example.com>
This report is a supplement to a June 2004 publication entitled, Growing the
Middle Class: Connecting All Miami-Dade Residents to Economic Opportunity. The
intent of this report is to provide specific information about the Haitian
community in Miami-Dade County in order to better describe its challenges.
After describing income trends, the report explores some of the reasons behind
the low incomes and higher poverty rates of Miami's Haitian population.
The Haitian community in Miami-Dade has gained a lot of ground since the late
1970s—there are now Haitian and Haitian American politicians, organizations,
businesses, and middle-class neighborhoods. But the numbers also show that
there is still much work to be done to ensure that all groups in the region,
including Haitians, have access to economic opportunity
