“Like the palm tree, Haitian women bend in the 
storm but do not break” – from a Haitian women’s song

WHEN:   Tuesday, September 28, 7-9PM
WHERE: SF Friends (Quaker) Meeting House:
  65-9th Street San Francisco, (btw Market & Mission Streets- Civic Ctr BART)
      (Please enter through north door - closest to Market St)

Heard much about post-quake Haiti recently? What 
about the voices of Haitian women? A women’s 
delegation from SF WILPF and Haiti Action 
Committee recently visited Haiti. Their purpose 
was to hear directly from Haitian women about the 
impact of the Jan. 12 earthquake on their lives 
and  to understand how they are responding. They 
met with hundreds of Haitian women and recorded 
their stories. Through slideshow and eyewitness 
reports, the delegation will report back on their findings.

Learn about the remarkable women’s organizations 
at the grassroots level that are mobilizing to 
rebuild Haiti. What is life like for Haitian 
women, many living in refugee camps, seven months 
after the quake? How do women evaluate the 
international relief effort? What are their key 
demands, including the widespread call for the return of PSresident Aristide?

SPEAKERS:  Ayana Labossiere, Judith Mirkinson, Leslie Mullin
