Organizer/AuthorHaiti Action Committee
Come hear our featured speaker, Dr. Maryse Narcisse, the presidential candidate of Fanmi Lavalas, the party of Haiti's first democratically elected president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

As a medical doctor, Dr. Narcisse led the Aristide Foundation's medical response after the 2010 earthquake and Hurricane Matthew.

Over the past two years, Haiti's popular movement has fought a relentless campaign for free and fair elections in support of Dr. Narcisse's candidacy. They fought to overturn the results of fraudulent elections that gave the presidency to a U.S.-backed right wing candidate.

A long-time Lavalas militant, Dr. Narcisse has been in the streets with the people day after day, as they faced police bullets, tear gas, water hoses and clubs.

Music by Vukani Mawethu Choir, Phavia Kugichagulia and Val Serrant
