Created in 2014, AyiboPost is an organization that aims to use journalism to bridge the information gap between Haitians in Haiti and the Haitian diaspora. AyiboPost provides a platform for members of the diaspora to have their voices heard as well as inform the diaspora of the realities of Haiti. Their goal is to foster a better-informed community that will be more politically engaged and make better decisions.
In a time when Haiti faces extreme economic and political crisis, it is important for the diaspora to better understand the situation in Haiti in order to shape U.S. policies and shed light on the issues that Haitians and the Haitian diaspora face.
With UUSC’s support, AyiboPost plans to produce journalistic content on the Haitian diaspora in the United States, organize in-person and virtual events, translate French and Haitian Creole content into English so information is accessible to second-generation Haitians, and create partnerships with Haitian-American grassroots organizations.
