Petition Background

On October 20, 27 Florida-based organizations and 24 other prominent Floridians wrote to Hillary Clinton asking her to articulate her positions on issues of concern to the Haitian American community, noting that "Hurricane Matthew devastated Haiti, affecting two million Haitians; stranding hundreds of thousands; killing at least 1,000; obliterating tens of thousands of homes; destroying and inundating towns, livestock, crops, and livelihoods; and causing a surge in cholera cases." [1]

The letter urges U.S. leadership to eradicate Haiti’s cholera epidemic - brought to Haiti by the UN - and to compensate its victims; to re-designate Haiti for Temporary Protected Status and expand the Haitian Family Reunification Program to protect and support Haitian-Americans in the wake of Hurricane Matthew; and to support Haitian efforts to ensure a credible electoral process.

Urge your Representative and Senators to support these reforms of U.S. policy towards Haiti by signing our petition.
