On January 28, 2010, panelists gathered to discuss, “HAITI: Perspectives on Crisis” in the Red Gym’s On Wisconsin room. The event was sponsored by the Center for Interdisciplinary French Studies; Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies (LACIS); the General Library System; and the Division of International Studies.
Gergens Polynice, an M.A. candidate in Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies (LACIS), who was in his home country of Haiti until just a few hours before the earthquake, spoke to the full audience. “A practical way we all can help is by supporting UW’s leadership to build a sustainable project, like a clinic, in Haiti,” Polynice said.
It is never too late to respond to the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti.
