Event: Haitian Women Call for Inclusion in International Donor Meeting

NEW YORK - March 26 - As donor nations gather in New York for a major conference on reconstruction in Haiti, Haitian women are demanding that their voices be heard in all phases of the deliberation.  To amplify their call, a coalition of Haitian and international women’s organizations will hold a public event.

Come hear directly from Haitian women about their proposals for Haiti’s future and the results they want to see from the donors’ conference and beyond.

MADRE calls for a human rights-based approach to reconstruction.  MADRE supports Haitian women’s call for policies that reflect the needs of Haiti’s poor majority, not the financial interests of donor countries.

When: Wednesday March 31, 1:15pm – 3:00pm
Where: Boss Rm., 8th Floor, Church Center | 44th Street & 1st Ave, New York, NY
