Background

We have seen in recent news the humiliation, injustice, and mistreatment of Haitians coming from the Red Cross's misappropriation of Haiti earthquake relief funds, the Dominican Republic's perverted expulsion of Dominicans of Haitian descent, and the dehumanizing photos of Haitians kept in cages in The Bahamas.

Why is this happening? It is happening because we are weak as a nation and as a Diaspora. If you heard about the recent Donald Trump blunder bad-mouthing Mexicans and Latinos, you will see what a united and powerful community of people can achieve. It's more the economic power and influence that drive "behavior" and decisions, and the Latino community understands how to use that weapon in very strategic ways.

We Haitians, therefore, must build A Stronger Haiti and Diaspora so we can protect Haitians around the world and come together as one to defend our rights and our dignity. No one can or will do that for us. We must do it ourselves!

All we ask of you regarding this Peition is to "Sign Your Name" here (if you're not yet a Member, please register so you can be counted) to show your support for:

1. Standing Together as a Unified Community, Haiti, Diaspora.

2. Taking action when needed to protect the rights of Haitians.

3. Speak as a Unified Voice against any abuse, mistreatment, discrimination, threat, and any other dehumanizing behavior towards Haitians.

Thank you for joining forces to make Haiti stronger and keep our communities safe everywhere.
