On Thursday, April 3, the community celebrated the City of Miami Beach for achieving a perfect score of 100 points on the Human Rights Campaign’s Municipal Equality Index (MEI), making it the highest-ranking city in the State of Florida, and the second in the country. In total, 293 cities nationwide, including 15 big cities in Florida, were evaluated for the index.

This incredible score is a giant welcome mat for Miami Beach and sets an example for others throughout the state and throughout the nation.
