From The Streets to the Table

Time: 4:00-5:30 PM EST


In recent years, street protests have struggled to bring about progressive change in Haiti. As the country’s woes continue to take a toll on its citizens, many are left asking – where do we go from here? Fundamentally reforming and improving democracy in Haiti depends on ensuring that Haitians are equipped to engage in meaningful conversations about the country’s most sustained problems. The country’s quest for a national dialogue that is fair, inclusive, and effective necessitates the substantive engagement of all of its citizens. Today, the debate is not about whether a national dialogue is needed – it is rather about who should be involved and how to do so in way that values every citizen.

Topic Focus Areas

  • Haitians
  • Haitian Americans
  • University Students
  • Students interested in public deliberation
  • Students interested in community-problem solving
  • Students involved in community development

Symposium Goals

“From The Streets to the Table” consists of a series of lectures and discussions that aim to provide a unique opportunity for Haitians to engage in public discourse about the country’s most wicked problems, learn more about deliberative practices, and create a roadmap for a national dialogue in that is fair, inclusive, and effective.
