Lunch & Learn with Local Haitian Civic Leaders (Nov. 30th, 2022)
We are equipping civic leaders who will transform Haiti’s classrooms and communities into spaces that will be foundational to Haiti’s citizens reclaiming their identity and agency. We believe that education will be the next cultural revolution in our mighty Haiti. We know Haiti’s potential and, for almost ten years, our network of now 450+ civic leaders have been contributing to community transformation.
Our new series of “lunch-n-learn” sessions are meant to help us continue to build meaningful allyship as we expand connections that reinforce and elevate the work of APA’s civic leaders.
