Haiti Relief and Community Empowerment

Tue, January 19, 2010 • 5:00 PM • WCAAAS, Jester, Mezzanine Level

UT IN SOLIDARITY WITH PEOPLE OF HAITI
URGENT      RELIEF AND COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT
 
ORGANIZING MEETING:  TUESDAY, JANUARY 19 @ 5:00 AT WCAAAS (JESTER)
 
THE UNITS LISTED BELOW HAVE COME TOGETHER TO CARRY OUT FUND RAISING EFFORTS, IN RESPONSE TO THE DISASTER.  OUR OBJECTIVE IS BOTH TO HELP MEET IMMEDIATE NEEDS, AND TO STRENGTHEN LONG TERM RELATIONS WITH A HAITIAN ORGANIZATION WORKING FOR COMMUNITY WELFARE AND EMPOWERMENT.
 
THE ORGANIZATION IS FOUNDATION AVENIR, WITH WHOM PROFESSOR JEMIMA PIERRE (ANTHROPOLOGY AND WCAAAS) HAS WORKED FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS.
 
THE TUESDAY MEETING WILL FOCUS ON LOGISTICS FOR A DAY LONG SERIES OF EVENTS PLANNED FOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 22.  WE HOPE TO RAISE A SIGNIFICANT SUM THAT PROFESSOR PIERRE CAN DELIVER TO FOUNDATION AVENIR WHEN SHE TRAVELS THERE IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
 
IF YOUR ORGANIZATION WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS EFFORT, PLEASE SEND A REPRESENTATIVE TO THE TUESDAY MEETING.
 
INDIVIDUALS WHO WANT TO HELP ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND AS WELL.
