6532: Save the date of Feb. 28th for the BRA's conference on the Dominican's bateyes. (NY City)

From: bateyrelief@mindspring.com

Dear Friends,

Don't forget our rendez-vous at the UN on Feb. 28th, from 3:30-8:30p. The
Haitian and Dominican governments, and scholars will bring to light the new
reality about the Dominican's bateyes where more than 1 million human beings
languish under questionable circumstances.

Your presence is crucial as you will have the unique opportunity to
challenge policies and laws that have been responsible for the chaotic
living conditions for thousands of Dominican and Haitian families.

You wil hear issues of poverty, migration, labor & rights. Speakers will
include award winning author, Edwidge Danticat - Executive Director of the
Dominican's State Sugar Council (CEA), Victor Manuel Baez - Consul of Haiti
in Barahona, Dominican Republic, Edwin Paraison - and Dominican Scholar at
FLACSO, Ruben Silie.

If you have not done so already, reserve your seat before Jan. 15th by
calling (917) 627-5026 or writing bateyrelief@mindspring.com.  An invitation
packet will be sent to you automatically.

We look forward to seeing you.  Happy Holidays!
