Through our Adult Literacy initiative, Haitian Workers Project, we continue to incorporate information into our regular curriculum and workshops to get updated information about current campaigns to the participants.
This year, Haitian Workers Project’s Community Leadership Training was held in June.
The training covered two campaigns:
- REUNITE HAITIAN- AMERICAN FAMILIES A campaign aimed towards having an executive order passed for Haitian Family Reunification Parole.
- END APARTHEID IN THE D.R. A campaign against the denationalization of Dominicans of Haitian descent.
Past campaigns have focused on domestic workers rights, worker negotiation skills, domestic violence (VAWA), trafficking/U Visas, campaign development strategies, and how to participate in advocacy efforts where those affected by immigration policies can have an influence on immigration policy.
