Black Lives Matter

 As an Organization that prides itself on our Haitian Heritage, Haitian Network Group of Detroit is  committed to supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and the changes that are necessary to make our respective communities safe for everyone. During this time, we encourage everyone to remember and reflect on the words “L’union fait la force” . “Unity makes strength” is a motto that is as important today as when it was first inscribed on the Haitian flag.

The Murder of George Floyd and the subsequent rallies calling for justice for those who do not have a voice is reminiscent of the time when slaves  took charge of their destiny by rebelling against their French masters and ultimately creating a free state in 1804. We, the HNGD Board, unequivocally support  those seeking justice for being targeted because of the color of their skin.

 “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” –  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
