Candlelight Vigil for Haiti
Tuesday, January 19, 2010, 4:30 pm
Embassy of the Republic of Haiti
2311 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20008
One week after the catastrophic earthquake, TransAfrica Forum and the Hip Hop Caucus ask that we gather in front of the Haiti Embassy in Washington, D.C., to show our support for the millions of people who have either lost lives, been severely injured or are left in the midst of the rubble in Haiti. To date, more than 50,000 Haitians have died, millions more are without sufficient medical help, food and clean drinking water. Aid assistance is hindered by the destruction of the port, hospitals and roads.
Let us join in a candlelight vigil and unite our hearts with our 'family' in Haiti and resolve that we will stand with them. Haitians need our spiritual support now more than ever. Please bring a candle and invite your friends.
We are gathering at 4:30pm and will hold a moment of silence at 4:53pm the exact time the earthquake leveled Port-au-Prince.
