WHO WE ARE

"Featured in Innovate Miami book as Social Innovator for promoting the SDGs".

Social Impact Movement was founded in 2016 as Florida Nonprofit Corporation and in 2017 registered as a 501(c)(3) Federal Tax Exempt with the mission to connect people to social-related topics. After a year of interacting and working, we understood we could play an important role by ​linking Miami to the global conversation​. We decided to step up, taking the challenge – and the opportunity – ​ to act for the social change movement.​ 

The ​Agenda 2030​ framework was incorporated in early 2018 at our core mission. Our programs raise awareness, educate, and inspire our community to be the actors of social change on topics affecting our economy, our society, and our environment. Social Impact Movement SDGs programs educate and bring awareness through CSR events, workshops, live activations, and social media.

Social Impact Movement builds partnerships to promote social change in Miami by highlighting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Connecting business leaders, enterprises, organizations, and government, linking local social responsibility actions to the global goals.

We raise awareness on issues affecting our community and educate individuals about SDG themes related to: quality education, gender equality, climate action and life below water.
