  • What The National Haitian-American Forum is doing in bringing together Haitian-Americans of all backgrounds to discuss, reflect and offer their thoughts on issues affecting our community is fantastic and should be commended for its efforts in that regard.

    We haven’t been as effective as we could be as a community because we haven’t always collaborated as we should have in the past in order to work as a unit to advance our community’s concerns and issues.

    To advance the causes of the Haitian-American community and gain the respect we deserve we must know that it is paramount that we learn to function as one unit so that we may take full advantage of our growing political clot to influence the political actors that represents our community.

    Again, I applaud all of you in The National Haitian-American Forum for all that you’re doing to educate our people on the issues affecting us and bringing together our community.
