Organizer

An n Pale Kreyol! (Let's Speak Haitian Creole!)

Organized by Patricia Philippe, An n Pale Kreyol is about attending cultural events with a Haitian theme, mingling with other Haitians/Haitian-Americans, speaking Kreyol at various events, volunteering and more.

We all commit to being respectful of other members and open and receptive to people at various levels of their Haitian cultural awareness and Kreyol speaking ability.  My hope is that through participation in this group we help each other to honor the language and improve our Kreyol  fluency.
