In spite of the ways that COVID-19 has altered much of our lives, we cannot allow it to impact our civic duty. This year is a big election year, which will allow us to have a significant opportunity to change the course of our government. Haitian-Americans are running for office in different states and at various levels. Join us for a conversation with these candidates as we explore their backgrounds, their motivations for running for office, and what they hope to achieve once elected.
