Before we all became aware of COVID-19, we were already suffering from another kind of pandemic–one that has lasted centuries. White supremacy is itself like a virus, infecting hearts and bodies with hatred and fear and infecting systems, practices and policies in ways that maintain body-breaking inequalities. The opportunists who […]

Testimonials

  • Corinna is the architect of the famous ‘Quadrangle Strategy’ that is the foundation on which ALL the rest of what we did for public involvement rests. I recall the first time Corinna sketched it out for us at HNTB’s office. It was like ‘Damn, that’s brilliant!’ So on behalf of everybody on the project team and all the residents who will never know how they came to be informed, educated and engaged as well as they did, Corinna, ‘thank you for everything.’

  • We must all agree the mood and quality of Viernes Culturales has changed drastically and positively in the last few months! That Corinna Moebius has been our executive director during that same time is no coincidence. We are truly blessed to have someone of her stance, caliber and integrity as our director.

  • I wanted to thank you for coming to Teen Club. Your presentation was excellent and quite effective. I have not seen them that engaged like that with other presentations. I hope that you enjoyed speaking with them because you have the tools to help them and motivate them.

  • Moebius was interactive and also you can tell she was knowledgeable and passionate about community building. I am glad for her expertise and perspective, her links and examples were applicable and helpful.

  • The program you put together was excellent! It seems that you have touched on a topic that is of interest to many people. I suspect you could have been there another two hours answering questions.

  • Corinna was a superb guide and one of the best we have had. She imparted to us so much valuable information in terms of the contributions of Afro-Cubans and African Americans to the area and culture. She went over the origins of Cuban rumba, the impact of sugar, important racial elements, where the club Ball and Chain got its name and so much more diverse important information. I highly recommend her.

  • Corinna Moebius is the perfect tour guide to show and teach you about the life, history, events, and the people who are currently part of Little Havana’s neighborhood. The first time I arranged a tour with Corinna was in 2012 for the preparatory school where I work at. Needless to say that both the students and I were fascinated by her knowledge, enthusiasm, and passion. Ever since, we have organized educational tours for several of our Spanish classes. Each year Corinna adds new information and details to her tours. She keeps current and shows fascinating details and insights that make the experience memorable wanting to come back to Little Havana. I highly recommend Corinna to any family member or friend who comes to visit Miami. Furthermore, I would recommend it to any high school teacher who would like to integrate and connect its curriculum to the outside world.

  • Corinna, I want to say that you are really an incredible consultant. I love working on projects with you and the way you add your own creativity and intelligence to every little task. Thank you for all your work for CTCNet and the many communities you touch. You’ve done such great work on this project.

  • Corinna has a deep, intuitive sense about different learning styles, interpersonal reactions to group activities, and creating space for individual co-learning and expression. She sees the forest, and each tree at the same time. She can communicate complex material in a form that everyone understands: via word, image, sound, motion, and silence. I would never venture into a group synthesis activity without her wisdom.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Moebius very much. She has inspired me to go back to my community and impact change. She has invigorated me in a profound way! I love her session. She is awesome!! Bring her back. Miami needs to hear her.
