United for the future

United Way has long been a driver of community-building, galvanizing people and organizations around solutions to our toughest problems. On April 17, our United Way joined forces with Peter Buffett, musician, philanthropist and youngest son of Warren Buffett, for a concert and conversation worth having.

After Buffett toured our United Way Center for Excellence in Early Education at the Batchelor Campus, he took the stage at Miami Dade College’s Wolfson campus. His goal was simple: to engage more people — of all political stripes, genders, races, ages and walks of life — to discuss diversity, equity and inclusion.

The musician and philanthropist entertained the crowd with videos, songs and Q&A sessions throughout the evening, engaging with audience members about what it truly takes to transform our communities.

Buffett ignited new thinking and energy around community solutions. With music and live conversation, he aimed to inspire the community to do more. His compelling stories engaged the audience to think about relationships, community and context — and most importantly, their place in it.
