Post Show Highlights

Hour 1: Hugues Girard reassured us that he and his family were spared by Irma and updated us on the aftermath of the hurricane in the rest of  Florida, the Jovenel Moïse administration's modification of the diaspora tax after much pressure and recent protests against the administration. We then talked about Caribbean solidarity for relief efforts in Puerto Rico and often overlooked Dominica, as well as some of the politics surrounding these disasters. See live tweets below for ways to help. (For PR, click the Remezcla link.)

Hour 2: Darnell Benoît, a teacher, introduced us to the Flanbwayan Haitian Literacy Project which she founded 12 years ago and manages to this day.  Although I'd initially thought that the organization worked with adults, it actually focuses on high school students who have recently migrated from Haiti, do not speak English and are in danger of not graduating. Flanbwayan  advocates for them at the city level, creates a haven for them, both pairing them with resources to help them graduate and providing a culture-filled environment for them after school. See live tweets below for more. Flanbwayan has a fundraiser coming up October 21 at Kinanm Lounge.
