HOST A HAITI TEACH-IN
V-Day 2011 Spotlight on Women and Girls of Haiti
Each year V-Day increases awareness by focusing on a specific group of women in the world who are resisting violence with courage and vision. In 2011, V-Day's Spotlight Campaign will be on the Women and Girls of Haiti. The Spotlight will highlight the high levels of violence against women and girls in Haiti, and will focus on the increased rates of sexual violence since the devastating earthquake that took place in January 2010. All funds raised through the Spotlight Campaign will be used to support a revolutionary national campaign in Haiti lead by a coalition of women activists - including longtime V-Day activist Elvire Eugene - that will address sexual violence through art, advocacy and legal services.
This Haiti Spotlight presentation outlines the history of violence against women in Haiti, as well as V-Day's work there, and plans for development. The presentation is free to download, please consider sharing this with your friends and family and hosting a public Teach-In to educate your community.
