Haiti: One Year Later

February 28th, 2011


It’s been a year since the tragedy that took the lives of 300,000 Haitian people and left over 1.6 million displaced. The situation has left women especially vulnerable to sexual violence and rape.

Please join the Howard Thurman Center Tea Club, Amnesty International, the Haitian Cultural Association and the Vagina Monologues for an evening of discussion on the dangers that women in Haitian camps face as they struggle to regain their stability. The Vagina Monologues will also be performing a spotlight piece on Haitian women and selling tickets at a discounted price for their March 5th performance. To top it off there will be some wonderful Haitian Food and Funky Music.

Please join us on Monday 2/28 from 3:30 – 6:30 PM as we keep the love alive for Haiti. For more event info, email Student Ambassador Annie Rupani at: annierupani@gmail.com.
