Description

Join Venture Cafe Miami for its monthly series, Around The Table, featuring Miami's highly sought after civic leaders. This month's Around the Table features a conversation with Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava.

Daniella Levine Cava was first elected in 2014, and re-elected in 2018, to serve as the Miami-Dade County Commissioner representing District 8. Her district includes Palmetto Bay, Cutler Bay, Homestead, and unincorporated areas of South Dade including Redland, Falls, Princeton, Naranja, Leisure City and parts of West Kendall.

Commissioner Levine Cava currently sits on the following Committees: Transportation and Finance; Infrastructure and Capital Improvements; Public Safety and Rehabilitation; and the Community Disparities Subcommittee of the Chair's Policy Council. She also serves on the Transportation Planning Organization and the Executive Board of the South Florida Regional Planning Council.

Since her election, Commissioner Levine has focused on delivering for District 8 on a variety of issues: Fighting for a fair share of resources for South Dade, increasing the County police force by 80 officers, expanding economic opportunity, championing parks and the environment, advocating for transit improvements and better planning, and hosting the annual South Dade Solutions Summit. To date, she has secured over $30 million in funds for infrastructure projects in South Dade.

Commissioner Levine Cava came to elected office after having served as an advocate for South Florida families for over 30 years. She served special needs children and immigrants at Legal Services of Greater Miami, and then represented children in the child welfare system as Associate and Legal Director for the Guardian Ad Litem Program.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew, she was recruited to create a new intake system for child abuse cases with the Department for Children and Families. Her efforts were concentrated on the neighborhoods of District 8 where she helped restore the lives and homes of those devastated by the storm.

In 1996 Commissioner Daniella founded Catalyst Miami, to help low- and middle-income families through education and advocacy. Catalyst helps approximately 5,000 people each year to become more self-sufficient.
