January 18, 2016 :  Renata Castro, Esq. an attorney in Broward County, was appointed for a seat at the Diversity Advisory Council of Broward County by Commissioner Lois Wexler.

Renata Castro, Esq. is a law graduate from Nova Southeastern University’s School of Law, and an attorney in good standing with the Florida Bar.  Brazilian by birth and a Naturalized American Citizen, Renata’s work in the field of immigration has made her increasingly sensitive to the needs of the Brazilian Community, in spite of the lack of political representation.  “Despite the fact that the Brazilian Community has blooming businesses in the county, and grows by the numbers, the lack of awareness for the community’s needs is blatant. In fact, Summons served in lawsuits in Broward County contains disclosures in Creole and Spanish, but nothing in Portuguese. My goal is to integrate the needs of our growing community to the agenda of Broward County”, says Renata Castro.

Broward County’s Diversity Advisory Council’s purpose is to identify and focus attention on the needs and issues of our diverse county. The Diversity Advisory Council collects, analyzes and interprets information on ethnic and cultural diversity issues, and to disseminate reports to the Broward County Commission and other interested groups and individuals.  The Board’s goal is also to develop recommendations for addressing ethnic and cultural diversity issues and problems affecting community relations in Broward County. Finally, the Broward County Diversity Advisory Council aims to develop and present conferences, seminars, and other community programs designed to promote ethnic, cultural and diversity understanding at all levels of community life in Broward County.

Broward County is a diverse community, and the 2010 Census proved that, for the first time, Broward became a minority-majority county. By 2030, Broward County’s Office of Urban Planning and Redevelopment projects that the County’s population will reach 2.5 million people from many diverse ethnic backgrounds. With a large population reflecting widely diverse religious, cultural and ethnic backgrounds, it is important that we understand and respect each other. The diversity of our community is an asset that we must value and celebrate.
