Jan 18, 2012

Two years after the devastating earthquake ravaged Haiti, NAN’s National ED will accompany the Haiti Support Project (HSP) and a delegation of thirty-seven (37) African Americans and Haitian Americans who are going to Haiti to assess the progress of the recovery/reconstruction and explore ways to engage people of African descent from the U.S. in the process of building the new Haiti. The Delegation includes business, faith, labor, civil rights/human rights leaders, and journalists and educators, who are eager to contribute to Haiti’s recovery/reconstruction.

National Action Network is supportive of the efforts being initiated by Dr. Ron Daniels, President, Institute of the Black World 21st Century and Founder of the Haiti Support Project. The Delegation will be briefed by officials of the U.S. Embassy, the Government of Haiti and organizations in civil society about the state of the recovery/reconstruction – with an emphasis on the status of interim and permanent housing for displaced persons, education, rural development and economic/business development.
