|Dear Friends of Diaspora
A friendly reminder that Diaspora Community Services and their growing list of partners are marching this Wednesday!
Forgot WHY we’re marching?
BECAUSE… One million are still homeless and unsafe, living in massive tent communities.
BECAUSE… over 50% of the rubble is still present, one year later.
BECAUSE… unemployment rests at a staggering 80%, quadrupling in some parts of Port au Prince.
BECAUSE… Cholera has claimed over 3,000 lives due to limited or no access to water and basic sanitary functions.
START: Times Square | 42nd & 7th Ave.
STOP: HAITIAN CONSULATE | 39th & Madison
FINISH: UNITED NATIONS | 47th & First Ave.
JANUARY 12TH | 1:30PM-5PM
