Public Transit Day
Public Transit Day brought needed awareness to the county’s public transit system and many of the issues surrounding it. We embedded ourselves with event organizers to better understand the mission behind #PublicTransitDay.

Giménez, Mayor of Miami-Dade County; Rebecca Fishman Lipsey, Founder of Radical Partners; Marta Viciedo, Co-Founder of Urban Impact Lab; Alice Bravo, Director of Department of Transportation and Public Works, Miami-Dade County; Javier Soto, CEO and President of The Miami Foundation; Agustina Woodgate from Radioee.net; and Pola Bunster and Isabella Acker of Prism Creative Group.

Aaron Glickman is a Miami native. After earning his degree in theatre from Florida State University, Aaron headed west to Los Angeles where he lived and worked for a decade. In 2006, he came home to launch Luxury Condo Living magazine – a print publication that covered the luxury condo lifestyle. As the impending real estate crash loomed, Aaron identified SocialMiami, a society blog with highly targeted following. After creating a business strategy designed to transform the platform into an online glossy magazine, Aaron became publisher, and the platform increased in revenue and site visitors by 10 times. He developed partnerships and marketing strategies with many of Miami’s most powerful brands, and created viral editorial strategies that highlighted the city’s greatest influencers. Additionally, Aaron became more involved with his community, sitting on committees and raising funds for Baptist Health, Miami Children’s Museum, Miami Children’s Hospital, YoungArts and many more. Aaron is currently a board member of Miami Theater Center and in 2015 was honored as a Miracle Maker by the Women’s Committee of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami. That same year, Aaron returned to the stage playing Richard Sherman in The Seven Year Itch at Miami Theater Center. His new media venture, Current.Miami, is a video-based digital media platform with an emphasis on storytelling.
