Haiti Report Back & Fundraiser



Having returned from Haiti just four days before the catastrophic earthquake, members of the Task Force on the Americas will discuss the years of US intervention and devastating neoliberal policies that preceded this latest disaster. They will share their findings based on interviews with more than 70 people.

The presentation is scheduled for Friday, February 12 at 7:30 PM at the First United Methodist Church, 9 Ross Valley Drive (at Fourth Street), San Rafael. Donations will benefit the SOPUDEP School. The school educates over 500 students from the poor neighborhoods of Port-au-Prince free of charge and provides many with their only meal of the day. Since the disaster the school is housing an emergency medical clinic staffed by Haitian and Cuban doctors.

The venue is wheelchair accessible. For more information: 415/924-3227, mitf [at] igc.org, or http://www.mitfamericas.org.
