"It is gratifying to help individuals identify what they stand for and develop opportunities for them to participate in creating change," said unite4:good Founder and global philanthropist, Anthony Melikhov. "We congratulate the City of Miami for creating measurable positive action and setting the standard for the movement as we roll out the campaign into the Bay Area and across the nation."
