The American Friends Service Committee is disturbed with the Administration’s announced resumption of arrests and deportations to Haiti of Haitian nationals with prior criminal convictions. We ask that this policy be immediately suspended and that available alternatives such as parole or community supervision be enacted instead.
On January 18th, AFSC's Greensboro office held a volunteer day to make disaster relief kits for Haiti. Thanks to the enormous turnout we had, it was a huge success! We were covered by many news outlets, some of which are linked below.
We made nearly twice as many kits as we expected for Haiti -- final count is 97 -- and also produced over 70 kits for local use. We think this is a great way to demonstrate the way that issues of poverty and economic justice cross borders, and affect us here in the Triad.
