Please send us a brief description of your organization’s role, interests, and needs, and we’ll publish this along with a link to your site. We welcome the participation of all individuals, groups, and organizations, faith-based or secular, committed to the long term sustainable reconstruction of Haiti for, by, and with the Haitian people.
On Tuesday, May 10 we participated in a call to help design one of the tracks for Movement Day, a gathering of leaders on September 22 in New York City to catalyze gospel movements in their cities. Here is some information on what’s being planned; for more information please visit MovementDay.com.
The objective of Movement Day is to:
- Convene leaders from across Greater New York and other large cities to hear the trends related to cities, urban ministry, and urban leadership from the best Christian thinkers; to
- Study the best models of urban gospel movements; and to
- Collaborate in new ways to reach and renew our metropolitan communities.
Well over a year after the catastrophic earthquake of January 2010, the Haitian people continue to be ravaged by the effects of extreme poverty. The goal of this track is to develop practical strategies, explore best practices, and identify a team of strategic organizational leaders so that an actionable plan can be implemented. This track is designed for Non-Profit, Church, Business and Government Leaders.
Mobilizing a Movement to Rebuild Haiti
Well over a year after the catastrophic earthquake of January 2010, Haiti is still in shambles. There is very little evidence of positive change. Government leadership is almost non-existent. More than one million people still live under tents and tarps in “temporary” camps. As the Haitian people continue to be ravaged by the effects of extreme poverty, the need for a unified, sustainable, long-term solution is more important than ever.
