The community forum, "Earthquake Response: A Human Rights Approach to Haiti," is scheduled for this coming Friday, February 5 at 12 noon. It will be held in the Alumni Reception Center of UC Hastings College of the Law, located at 200 McAllister Street in San Francisco. Sponsored the by Hastings to Haiti Partnership, the program involves a panel discussion focused on informing the Hastings Community not just about what is going on in Haiti, but how all of us can play a constructive role in its reconstruction. We will listen to live Haitian music and enjoy light refreshments as we engage in dialogue with these community activists:
-Reagan Lolo, a community organizer and interpreter from Haiti who returned there briefly after the earthquake, will provide an account of what is happening in the more isolated parts of the stricken area.
-James Tamplin, who was in Haiti at the time of the earthquake, will discuss his experiences participating in some of the relief work.
-Blaine Bookey, Hastings Alum and lawyer with the Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti, will discuss plans for re-building Haiti and how lawyers can encourage respect for human rights during the rebuilding period.
-Prof. Naomi Roht Arriaza will provide an international law perspective.
-Richard A. Boswell, Professor of Immigration Law, will be moderating the panel.
