Involvement of the Diaspora in Haitian Recovery Efforts


WHEREAS, the NAACP has a long history of involvement in Haiti beginning with James Weldon Johnson and W.E.B. Dubois; and 

WHEREAS, Haiti has suffered from the heaviest losses ever from an earthquake; and 

WHEREAS, the money sent to Haiti by the Diaspora is the largest single source of income to that country; and 

WHEREAS, the Diaspora possesses significant knowledge and skills vital to the rebuilding of that country but is not often allowed to be involved in the decision- making process. 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the NAACP work toward including the Haitian Diaspora to play an active and decision-making role in recovery and economic development efforts by making the importance of this issue known to the United States and United Nations officials as well as non–governmental organizations involved in disaster relief.
