These goals are deeply aligned to issues affecting our local community and it's important to have organizations working toward connecting local stakeholders, movers & shakers into raising awareness and taking action.

The SIM team is incredible, they are always looking to highlight the sustainable development goals of the United Nations in the communities and looking for ways to promote helping the planet, promoting gender equality, peace and justice through social impact activities.

I met the Social Impact Movement team at a Town Hall Meeting for Equal Pay and Living Wage last school year, and I have been in contact with them ever since. I am so lucky to have met such a great group of people who care and devote their lives to sustainable development and improving our Miami community. I am an advocate and changemaker for Equal Pay, which falls under Sustainable Development Goal 5 (SDG 5), Gender Equality. SIM has been so helpful in supporting my efforts to empower young women in the Miami community, and it even created a platform for me to facilitate my salary negotiation workshops to high school girls.

The Social Impact Movement has connected us to events and resources linked to the UN SDG’s. Because of the great work of this organization, our organization Bracelets for Commitment has been able to accomplish so many incredible things. Miami’s impact on the UN SDG’s would be significantly weaker without the hard work the Social Impact Movement does!! This is a wonderful Organization that more people should get involved with! Most of the partners we have found for our organization we met at events held by Social Impact Movement, we are forever grateful for the caliber of the community they always have at their events.
