ABA LOKIPASYON! Solidarity in Action for Haiti: what can we do?*


·      A former US president is leading a sovereign country’s reconstruction

·      No effective mechanism for the UN system to hear the voices of 1.7
million internally displaced people

·      8 months later and with billions of dollars pledged, the majority of
a city still lives under plastic



Guest visitors: Brian Concannon (Institute for Justice & Democracy in
Haiti), Mark Snyder (International Action Ties)
