Event: Haitian Women Call for Inclusion in International Donor Meeting

NEW YORK - 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

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
