Commemorate Haiti’s earthquake in Boston with Senator Forry.
We come together to pay tribute to those who lost their lives and reflect on the progress made so far in rebuilding. Through the work of the Haitian diaspora and friends of Haiti, we have accomplished a significant victory. Four years ago, at the State House, Senator Linda Dorcena Forry launched a petition drive resulting in the collection and submission of over 6,000 signatures to our President and the Department of Homeland Security encouraging them to establish the Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program (HFRPP). Today, Senator Forry is proud to say that our goals have been achieved. Late last year, President Barack Obama approved the establishment of HFRPP. We will continue our advocacy efforts on behalf of the immigrant community and hope you will join us.
