Join CHRGJ in NYC for a film screening on housing rights in Haiti.
Lester Pollack Colloquium Room, 9th Floor
245 Sullivan Street
New York, NY
September 23, 2014 6:30pm – 8:30pm
After a devastating earthquake struck Haiti in 2010, 1.5 million people lost their homes. Four years later, more than 100,000 people continue to live in informal tent cities where they face regular threats of eviction, water and sanitation problems, and security risks. The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice invites you to watch Mozayik, a documentary about life in the Mozayik displacement camp. Following the film hear from filmmaker Jon Bougher, Haitian housing rights activist Jackson Doliscar, and Professor Meg Satterthwaite. The panelists will discuss the human rights issues highlighted in the film, how they fit into the international legal context, how activists can encourage participation within affected communities, and how participation can facilitate rights protections.
