DC Loves Haiti: A Benefit for the People of Haiti

The world watched in horror as a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti on January 12. With a strong and proud history as the world’s first independent Black republic, Haiti has also long suffered poverty and did not have the infrastructure to cope with the disaster. Many of us in Washington, DC are wondering how we can help the 3 million people who have been devastated and displaced.

Join us for a night together to benefit both the immediate relief efforts and the long-term recovery and re-building. The evening will also include a brief program with key leaders from the local Haitian-American community and who are working to improve life in Haiti.
