Democrats and Republicans, editorial boards and city governments, Haitian Americans and all who care to save lives, help Haiti recover, and secure fair treatment are urging the White House to instruct DHS to create a Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program.

Sup­port­ers include Mass­a­chu­setts Gov­er­nor Deval Patrick, at least eleven U.S.Senators includ­ing all four from Massachusetts and Florida; at least 90 U.S.Representatives; ten major edi­to­ri­al boards; the U.S. Con­fer­ence of Mayors, Philadelphia’s City Coun­cil, etc.Massachusetts State Representative Linda Dorcena Forry, who led the Black and Latino Legislative Caucus in urging this relief, now has created this excellent petition to the President on which she and we hope to obtain at least 5,000 signatures!

Please join this effort by adding your name to the petition and broadly distributing the link to all of your contacts and friends nationwide urging them to do the same!

It takes a minute and will send a pow­er­ful mes­sage to the White House that this is some­thing to do NOW!

Thanks in advance for helping Haiti and saving lives by quickly reuniting families!
