The South Florida People of Color condemn the brutal treatment and mass deportation of Haitian migrants seeking refuge at the Texas border from the devastation of the recent earthquake, a series of hurricanes, tropical storms and a deepening political crisis following the mysterious assassination of President Jovenel Moise in July. Due to these crises people are desperate for a safe place for their families, only to be further brutalized by U.S. Border Patrol Agents and "whipped like cattle.”
Our mission is in unison with the struggle for stability and democracy in Haiti. To people of African descent worldwide, this triggers traumatic images of Black people being lynched, trampled, killed, beaten, chased; being treated less than humans. No human being should be brutalized!

South Florida People of Color (SFPoC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit racial healing organization.
Dedicated to disrupting racism and bigotry by providing creative programs for open dialogue and personal interaction across the racial, ethnic and cultural divides. These encounters break down biases and stereotypes and help participants build empathetic relationships which is the powerhouse of disrupting racism on a personal level and eventually a systemic level.
WE ARE SOUTH FLORIDA PEOPLE OF COLOR
Our organization exists to answer the perennial call for a national conversation on race. We believe that nothing will bridge the yawning and violent systemic and structural gaps that exist between White, Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPoC) communities without race conversations.
Dismantling racism in all of its forms – individual, institutional, and systemic through education and advocacy.
