An Urgent Appeal from the Haiti Emergency Relief Fund

An Urgent Appeal from the Haiti Emergency Relief Fund
Haiti hit by the first large earthquake in 240 years

Thousands may have been killed and tens of thousands left homeless. This is a moment in which your solidarity is of critical importance.

Haiti's grassroots movement – including labor unions, women's groups, educators and human rights activists, support committees for prisoners, and agricultural cooperatives – is attempting to funnel needed aid to those most hit by the earthquake. Grassroots organizers are doing what they can – with the most limited of funds – to make a difference. Please take this chance to lend them your support.

This is a time for all of us to act.

What Can You Do?
Since its inception in March 2004, the Haiti Emergency Relief Fund has given concrete aid to Haiti's grassroots democratic movement as they attempted to survive the brutal coup and to rebuild shattered development projects. We urge you to contribute generously, not only for this immediate crisis, but in order to support the long-run development of human rights, sustainable agriculture and economic justice in Haiti.

During this period, if you or anyone you know are planning to make a donation to assist those in need, please consider the Haiti Emergency Relief Fund
