Fundraiser for Haiti this Weekend at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe

I have always loved the Nuyorican, from my first days watching other poets compete to my own time on the stage. It will always be one of the places in NYC that I consider home. So it is a privilege to announce their fundraiser for Haiti here on the blog. The show will include both Haitian and Dominican musicians and poets as well as a host of other artists. If you are not in the NYC area, you can check your local weekly for events fundraising for Haiti instead; we will post any that come our way. (NY/NJ folks – The Haitian Solidarity Network is also having a meeting to discuss action in Haiti on Saturday in the NYC area, sorry I don’t have the address.)

When: Jan 17 7-9 pm
Where: 236 East 3rd St. (bet. Avenue B and Avenue C)
Suggested Donation: $20
Proceeds go to: Doctors Without Borders & Yele
