LA Forum on and Fundraiser for Haiti

 
On July 31st an overflow audience filled the Southern California Library for the Public Forum on and Fundraiser for Haiti. Guest speakers included actor and activist Danny Glover; Pierre Labossiere, co-founder of Haiti Action Committee; and Robert Roth, board member of Haiti Emergency Relief Fund. Chairing was Margaret Prescod, host of KPFK's Sojourner Truth and Women of Color in the Global Women's Strike. The event raised $3,242 for Haiti. The event both helped get the word out about what's happening on the ground in Haiti and raised funds to support the Haitian grassroots.

In the action part of the event, a call was made for signatures to a letter to Latin American governments asking them to withdraw their troops from Haiti, and for a follow-up meeting which is scheduled for Saturday September 24th, 2pm at the Blazer Learning Center, 1517 West 48th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90062 to broaden the work of the Haiti Working Group/LA.
