Haiti & CSFilm | NIRV Events | 12k Raised Toward 30k Year End Goal

December 17, 2019

Community Supported Film and Haiti’s AyiboPost are preparing a new year-long video journalism training and production program for 2020. With your support, journalists at AyiboPost, who participated in CSFilm’s 2014 training and production process, will further educate themselves and partners across the country.

With this collaboration they will produce revealing stories on the successes and failures of governmental, non-governmental and international institutions since the horrific earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010. Haiti is in turmoil and Haitians are demanding information and accountability. This project will effectively contribute to these needs.

This work takes resources. We need your help now to:
1. Fund the Haiti 2020 Information and Accountability Initiative;

2. Sustain Community Supported Film’s New Immigrant and Refugee Visions Screen&Discuss momentum into 2020.

 NIRVElection year 2020 will be critical to the welfare of new immigrants in the United States and migrants and refugees worldwide.

Help us fund and organize Screen&Discuss events across the country – including those with our new collaborator – the YMCA and its network of hundreds of grassroots Ys across the country.

We’ve made great progress toward our $30,000 end-of-year goal. Thank you to those who have contributed $12,000.  Help us raise the remaining $18,000 so that we can continue to amplify the local voices and visions of Haitians and of immigrants and refugees in the US.




Many thanks,

The CSFilm Team

P.S. The NIRV DVD is available and could make for a great holiday gift for your loved and loving 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th…generation immigrant!
