  1. The event was very well attended and stimulating with lots of local folks who support grassroot orgs in Haiti sharing the work they do.

    Talked about possible sister city relationship.

    • i’m so glad! i could not make it. i hope there was talk of what haitians can do to build their own, and not just outsiders “rebuilding.” this is important, we all know — it’s not about us, it’s about those who actually live there. good one, and thank you very much for attending and commenting here. -jeanene
