Meet two amazing community organizers and labor leaders on a speaking tour from Haiti!

Ginette Apollon is a community organizer, grassroots leader and President of the Commission of Women Workers within one of the largest labor federations in Haiti, the Confederation des Travailleurs Haitiens (CTH). She is also a founding member and President of the community organization known as The Centre de Reintegration Economique et Sociale des Femmes Haitiennes (CRESFHA), which organizes primarily working-class women around issues of women's rights, education, HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, and economic empowerment.

Rea Dol is also a community organizer, grassroots leader and coordinator of a federation of women's organizations that focus primarily on issues of women's rights, education, HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, and economic empowerment. She is also a member of the community organization known as SOPUDEP (Society of Providence United for the Development of Petionville) and is the co-founder and director of the SOPUDEP school that serves the educational needs of the community's poorer children.
