Mayors Hemispheric Forum

It's started! This is the third hemispheric forum where we gather US mayors with our counterparts from the region.
When we first conceived this idea in 2006, it was to bring together local leaders from throughout this hemisphere, connecting over the issues that face us all, on the theory that what affects us here in miami is not much different than what affects people in Quito, Toronto, Lima, Santo Domingo, or anywhere else.

We have found that mayors all have the same challenges, and that we all speak the same language.

In the next few days we will see how similar we really are and that truly it matters not where we come from, but that we all want what it best for our cities, and what is best for our people.
