A perforance and panel discussion to honor and remember hatian women and girls on the anniversary of the earthquake
Moderated by Jayne E. Fleming Human Rights Lawyer / Catherine Filloux Playwright
FAVILEK was founded in the mid nineties by women who were victims of politically motivated sexual assault. One of their greatest achievements was the successful prosecution of a Haitian paramilitary leader within U.S. court system with the assistance of the Bureau of Advocates International, The Center for Justice and Accountability and The Center for Constitutional Rights. The case won the women of Haiti redress against their assailants by way of psychological counseling, support groups for their members as well as support for their award winning theater group. To this day, the women of Haiti's FAVILEK continue to fight for economic and social justice within the impoverished and post quake environment of Port-au-Prince.
