Universite Quisqueya: Haiti Earthquake Relief [Online Event]October 21, 2021 (Thursday): 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
2021 has seen an unprecedented series of disasters for the world’s first free Black republic: in addition to COVID and its economic crisis, Haitian people have faced a constitutional crisis, state-sanctioned violence and human rights violations – both in Haiti and along the U.S.-Mexico border – the assassination of the president, two earthquakes and a deadly hurricane with several more months in the hurricane season extended because of climate change.
Haitian Studies Association has attempted to step up and fulfill our responsibility to make our reservoir of knowledge accessible to journalists, activists, and policymakers, convoking timely conversations.
This conversation continues – we invite you to join H.S.A. and partners American Jewish World Service, the Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center at Florida International University, the Haiti Advocacy Working Group, Haiti Response Coalition, Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti and the North American Congress on Latin America, for Advocacy Day – Thursday, October 21.
