Urban League of Broward County and Hispanic Unity of Florida release State of Black Broward and State of Hispanic and Immigrant Broward Reports.

L to R: Felipe Pinzon, President and CEO, Hispanic Unity; Dr. Germaine Smith-Baugh, President and CEO, Urban League of Broward County; Dr. Edward "Ned" Murry, Associate Director, FIU Metropolitan Center.

The reports are the first of their kind to be published together for Broward County. Both reports view Broward County through an equity lens – in this case – through the Black and Hispanic stakeholders of Broward County.

The reports hold critical insights on:

  • Housing
  • Education
  • Public Health
  • Criminal Justice
  • Voter Engagement
  • Economy (Workforce / Entrepreneurship)
  • Broward County Population & Demographic Trends

Funded by The Jim Moran Foundation and produced in partnership with the Florida International University Jorge M. Perez Metropolitan Center, the reports examine alarming opportunity gaps drawing from dozens of public and private data sources, the reports revealed clear evidence of persistent concentrations of income inequality in Broward’s Black and Hispanic communities.
