Please join IJDH volunteers throughout North America in supporting the fight for justice for Haiti’s cholera victims by hosting a screening of the award-winning film Baseball in the Time of Cholera.
The screening can be in your living room, a theater or a church basement, anytime in December, January or February. You can invite a few friends or the broader community. All we ask is that you ask your guests to financially support the work of the Bureau des Avocats Internationaux and the Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti on behalf of 15,000 victims of cholera.
Even better, commit to a screening as part of “Giving Tuesday 2012.” Giving Tuesday is a national day of giving that encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations throughout the “Giving Season.”
You’ll help keep the BAI and IJDH legal team fighting on the front lines to stop Haiti’s cholera epidemic and obtain justice for the victims. Our legal claim against the United Nations, which brought the cholera to Haiti, seeks the water and sanitation infrastructure necessary to control the epidemic, compensation for the victims and an apology. Because we are going up against the UN, it has been very hard to obtain institutional support for the case, so we depend on individual donors to keep the case alive. We’ll send you a DVD of Baseball in the Time of Cholera, a 28 minute, compelling film about the cholera epidemic that features inspiring footage of the BAI’s Mario Joseph. We will include a special video message from Mario to screening guests, suggested discussion questions and background materials about the cholera case.
